During our Easter egg-dyeing the kids said I could only have TWO eggs to do what I want with. Two?? If they are only allowing me to decorate two eggs I better make sure I make them count.
First, let me give you a sure fire way to get perfect boiled eggs: Carefully place your eggs in a pan. (I usually do 6 in a saucepan, if I do more I use a large pot.) Gently cover the eggs with about 1-2 inches of water.
Bring the pot to a boil – obviously watch it, don’t go far it will be boiling before you know it. Once it reaches a boil, turn the heat OFF. Cover with a lid, and let it sit there for 12 minutes.
Prep a bowl filled halfway with ice water, set aside. When the 12mins are up, drain the eggs and place them in the ice water to cool. Keep them in the fridge til you are ready to use them.
For Pikachu I dyed the egg in yellow, then let it dry.
After that I simply used Sharpies (my fave pen) to fill in the big eyes, tiny nose and mouth.
Then I went back in with a red sharpie and colored in the tongue and cheeks.
A Pokeball is even simpler. Just make a small circle, outline it with a larger circle and draw two thick vertical lines running off each side. Color in the top half of the egg in red and you’re done!
Catch ‘em all during your Easter egg hunt!
