What You Need:

What You Do:

  1. Put a sheet of paper towel on the table.

  4. Wrap the paper towel around the onion skins and egg, and secure with rubber bands or string.
  5. With adult supervision, place the wrapped egg in a pot of boiling water and boil for about 10 minutes (so you end up with a hard boiled egg).

Note: you can rub a bit of olive oil on the eggs to shine them up and help to bring out the color.
