  • rubber gloves (to protect hands)

What You Do:

  1. Wet the paper towel, then squeeze out as much water as you can.
  2. Wrap the whole towel around the egg (hard boiled), crumpling it a little.
  3. Place the egg, wrapped with the paper towel, into a bowl.
  4. Drip drops of food color here and there on the paper towel.
  5. Let the whole thing dry, then remove the paper towel to see the designs.
