This is how you make dinosaur eggs

Making dinosaur eggs is not that difficult at all. First of all, you have to cook the eggs, of course, as you normally would. Are you unsure about the correct cooking time?

In general (i.e. for a medium-sized egg) the following cooking times apply:

  • Soft-boiled egg: 3-4 minutes
  • Semi-soft egg: 5-6 minutes
  • Hard-boiled egg: 8-9 minutes

Then let your eggs cool under cold running water. Success? Gently roll the eggs over the table top with your palm so that the shell begins to break, but the pieces don’t come off.

Use dye…

Now put some water in a bowl and drop a few drops of food coloring into it. The darkest colors (such as red, blue, and green) work best. Orange or yellow do not give such a nice effect.

Place the eggs in the water and food coloring solution and leave to stand for 3 to 4 hours. So you do need a bit of patience, but there’s nothing else to it. Is the time up? Pat the eggs dry with kitchen paper and carefully peel off the shell. Tadaaa!

…or natural dye

Not a fan of chemical dye? It should also work with natural dyes. For example , there are many alternatives for red dye . For blue-purple you can use cooking water from red cabbage and for green the cooking water from spinach.

The dinosaur eggs look extra nice on a bed of lettuce, for example in a lunch box.
