Cracked Shell Egg Dying

If you're looking for a way to spice up egg dying, try rolling hard-boiled eggs on the counter to gently crack the shell before dipping in dye. After the dyed eggs have dried, remove the cracked shell to reveal colorful boiled egg whites reminiscent of rocks.
EHow has a tutorial for this cracked shell egg dying method using natural tea-based dyes. The eggs above were dyed with regular food coloring.

After dying eggs, visit author Jan Brett's site to get this Easter egg coloring page.
Then watch Jan Brett's video about her new springtime book, The Easter Egg, an egg-decorating story.
