My whole family loved this project. After all, the eggs were dyed they used the leftover foam to play around.

Be aware it can be a messy project and the food coloring ends up on hands and cloth.

After the eggs were tried I was surprised that the colored eggs do not color your hands when touching them.

We really enjoyed this activity and we will try this soon again!
