Easter Egg Designs
Around Easter, it’s always fun to see what happens when you mix vinegar with those little tabs of dye and dip in your Easter eggs. There’s fun chemistry in all that for any third grader, but here’s a way to take the learning one step further, and celebrate natural world of springtime ferns. But beware: this activity requires delicate handling. Your third grader can handle most of it—but you'll probably want to be on hand for technical assistance.
What You Need:
- One package of commercial Easter egg dyes
- Several small pressed ferns.
- Discarded pantyhose or onion netting bags, cut up
- Glue stick with “repositionable” glue
