Supplies Needed:- Uncooked eggs- Small rotary tool, cuticle scissors, or crafts knife- Safety glasses- Bowl- Pin or paper clip- Bulb syringe- Water- Bleach

Follow these easy how-to instructions to blow out uncooked eggs. You should be able to blow out one dozen eggs in about an hour, not including dry time.

Step 1: Poke Holes in the Egg

Here’s how to create a hole in an egg without breaking the whole shell: The key to blowing eggs is to not crack the shell. Use a small rotary tool or the sharp point of a pair of cuticle scissors or craft knife to carefully poke a hole slightly larger than a 1/8-inch diameter at each end of the raw egg. Wear safety glasses, especially if using a power tool. Do this over an empty bowl or container to catch drips once the holes have been cut.

Step 2: Drain Egg Whites and Yolk

The most essential part of blowing the yolk out of an egg comes next. Poke a pin or bent paper clip through the holes several times to break up the yolk. Next, place a bulb syringe in one of the holes and squeeze it to blow the egg’s contents out through the other end. Continue to gently squeeze until the entire egg is empty.

Step 3: Clean and Dry Eggs

Rinse the blown egg gently with water and a tiny amount of bleach to remove any remaining membrane. Remember not to mix bleach with other cleaning chemicals. Let the egg dry completely before using it in any Easter craft projects.
