This is a nice idea to put chocolate eggs in, decorated eggs as show here, or even to add some colour to your fridge instead of boring cardboard.

Step One: Push the pin through the top of the egg and take it out.

Step Two: Do the same thing to the bottom of the egg except this time you want to make the hole a bit bigger. Create a small circle and chip away at it till it’s big enough for the yolk and white to come out.

Step Three: Blow through the hole at the top of the egg. The yolk and white will come out the bottom. Put the bowl underneath.

Step Four: If your eggs are brown like mine, then I would recommend painting them with all weather exterior (low sheen) white paint, so that you don’t have a brown tinge coming through when you paint them later on. I tried using white acrylics but the paint was too thin.

Step Five: Now for the fun part! Come up with your ideas and get painting!
