Paper Egg Dyeing
What happens when crepe paper gets wet?
That was the motivation for the artwork this morning.
The children were encouraged to rip the crepe paper into
small pieces and lay them on their white egg shaped paper.
The fun part is using the spray bottle. Learning how to press
it to make the water come out. Making sure that the nozzle is
pointing in the right direction so you don’t spray yourself in the
After it was wet we laid a another egg on top of the wet one
Most were very wet and as we pressed down we started
to see the colours come through.
Pull the two paper eggs apart to see what happened.
For smaller children we found it easier to use a brush
and water rather than the spray bottle.
