Step 1. Take a straight pin and punch a hole in the bottom of the egg. Then wiggle around to make a little bigger and use the head end of the pin make a larger hole.
Step 2. On the top of the egg make a tiny hole with the straight pin.
Step 3. Blow into the small hole, holding the egg over a bowl to catch the insides. You do need to blow quite hard, but my older daughter was able to do it.
Step 4. Wash out the egg well with water and then blow out excess water and let dry.
Now the better you are at this, the smaller your holes should be. I wasn't too good so my bottom holes were bigger than they probably should be. I plan to tie/glue some ribbon around the egg for hanging and it can cover up the hole.
We will need to find a few more uses for eggs in the next couple of days and then on Thursday plan to color them using a basic Egg Dying kit. We may be adventurous and try some other decorating techniques too!
*****new tip I have discovered for this year - put a shish-kabob stick into the larger hole and stick into styrofoam or floral foam to allow eggs to dry
