Izzy has been loving Sonic, long before the release of the new movie. After watching the new Sonic Movie Izzy and I were feeling creative. While dying Easter eggs, we decided to make a bunch of Sonic eggs. I’m sharing the steps we took to create our Sonic eggs & I even created a free printable PDF for you guys. That way, you can easily make some Sonic Easter eggs too!
Step 1: Boil The Eggs
We put our eggs in a pasta pot and filled it with water, so that all the eggs were submerged. Then we brought the water to a boil. Once boiling we turned off the burner and set a timer for 12 minutes. During that time, we filled a bowl with ice cold water. If you don’t have ice, that’s okay, just us cold water. When the timer goes off, place each egg into the cold water. We used a pasta spoon to carefully transfer each egg. If you don’t have ice water, you may have to dump the water and add more cold water one more time. Once cooled, you can place the eggs back into the egg carton & put them in the fridge.
Step 2: Dye The Eggs
On to the super fun parts! You need to get some small bowls or cups and prepare your egg dying station. We followed instructions on an egg dying kit.
If you you don’t have a kit, you can try our food dye recipe. First get some cups or bowls and add 1/2 cup of warm water (or however much you need to submerge the eggs). Then mix in 15-20 drops of food coloring per 1/2 cup of water. For brighter eggs, use 20. Lastly mix in 1 tablespoon of white vinegar.
If you do not have an Easter egg dying kit or food dye, no worries! You can color your eggs with non toxic crayons or markers, or just leave them white.
Step 3: Create Your Sonic Movie Toppers
You can get your free printable Sonic egg toppers below. Just click and print. Cut out the outline of the toppers & then let your kids color their Sonic toppers.
Right click, save and print the PDF below.
Next cut in from the outside edge, then up and down the triangle ear. Leave the last part attached and fold down. On the printable PDF, where you will see in red the area to not cut, which is for folding. Once folded, bring the two points together in the back. You can use tape or fold the tips down to hold it in place. Shown below, you can see I folded the ends. Optional: We ended up coloring the back area blue as well, so there was no white paper showing. You can slightly see this on the image with the eggs in the bowl.
Lastly, once your dyed eggs are dry, add your Sonic toppers!
We hope you have a blast with our Easter egg idea! Don’t forget to watch #SonicMovie on Digital today!
