What You'll Need:

  • Several Eggs (at least 1 per guest)
  • Egg Dye Kits (at least 1)

Preparation:

Hard-boil 1 or 2 eggs per guest before the party.


At the Party:
  1. Have the children make "robin eggs" by using a clear or white wax crayon to draw spots on the eggs.
  2. Then, help the children dye the eggs using blue egg dye or concentrated blue food coloring.
  3. As the eggs dry, the children will notice that the white spots show through, making the eggs look like robin eggs.
  4. Once the eggs are dry, divide the children into two teams, and have each team hide half of the eggs in different rooms or on different sides of the yard.
  5. When they've finished hiding the eggs, have the teams switch places, and then give them 2 minutes to find as many of the other team's eggs as possible.
  6. After 2 minutes, count each team's eggs, and award a prize to the team that found the most.
  7. Recover any remaining eggs, and then make egg salad and/or deviled eggs for a fun snack!
