Tonight, we had our annual Easter Egg painting party! I'll post pictures soon, but I thought I would share a few tips that we have learned over the years about how to easily blow out eggs. This year, I think that we have finally gotten it down pat!
In order to get all of the insides on the outside, you must first put a hole on either end of the egg. In years past, we have always used a fairly long needle to do this because it also serves the purpose of breaking up the yolk on the inside. The needle usually works fine but can tend to put little hairline cracks in the egg. This year, we used a drill with a very small bit to drill into the end of the egg! It seems crazy to use a big, heavy power tool with such a fragile thing as an egg, but it worked perfectly.
After the eggs are all rinsed out and have dried a bit, I always put them in a 200 degree oven for about 45 minutes. This helps to dry them out all the way and I swear it makes them stronger (but I have absolutely no evidence supporting that claim!).
