Tips To Decorate Easter Eggs

The tradition of decorating Easter eggs goes back hundreds of years — so far, in fact, that no one is exactly sure when it started. What is known is that an egg is the symbol of rebirth and new life in many different cultures.

In the Christian religion, Easter is celebrated as the time of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. In recent years, however, Easter has become as much a secular holiday (not associated with any religion) as a religious holiday. The arrival of spring brings rebirth and new life to flowers and trees, and people all over the world celebrate the season by decorating Easter eggs.

Smart Egg Tower
Your friends will think that you are an Easter egg trainer when they see this smart egg trick. You can tell them that your eggs are so “eggs” that they have learned to sink or float in a glass of water.

What You Will Need:
2 raw eggs

Waterproof markers

Two 8-ounce water glasses

Water

4 tablespoons sugar

Spoon

Bowl

Before performing the trick, decorate 2 raw eggs with waterproof markers. Leave a blank rectangular space on each of your drawings so that a friend can label the eggs during the round.

Then fill the glasses with water about 3/4 inch from the top. Put the sugar in one of the glasses and mix well. (Remember which glass contains the sugar, but do not tell anyone about this part!)

When you are ready to perform the trick, tell your friends about your smart eggs. Explain that these eggs can obey written orders. Ask a friend to use a waterproof marker to label the eggs with the word “sink” on one and the word “float” on the other.

After your friend has returned the eggs to you, put the “sink” egg in plain water and the “float” egg in sweet water.

Watch the eggs obey orders! If friends are wondering how you did it, ask them to break the eggs into a bowl so that they can see that there were no tricks inside the eggs!
