These hard-boiled snorkelers are fully equipped for a dip in the blue (or green or pink). For a hilarious centerpiece, display a row of the finished dudes sitting in their dye-ving tanks.

What you’ll need

  • Egg dye
  • White eggs, hard-boiled
  • Permanent marker
  • 3/4-inch round white adhesive labels
  • 1-inch-wide water-bottle lids
  • Small rubber bands
  • White glue or glue gun
  • Flexible straws
  • Self-adhesive foam
  • Small clear glasses or bowls (optional)
  • Small pitcher (optional)

How to make it

  1. For each snorkeler, dye the bottom third of an egg, then let it dry.
  2. Draw eyes on a label and adhere it to a water-bottle lid. Slip the rubber band around the egg, about a quarter of the way down. Glue the lid over a rubber band.
  3. Trim a straw 1 inch above and 2 inches below the flexible section. Bend it into a snorkel shape and glue it in place.
  4. Cut foam flippers (trace ourย template ). Glue them to the egg, adhesive side down, and let dry. Stick the adhesive side to the display surface, or, if you like, to the inside of a small glass or bowl. With the pitcher, gently pour in dye until the egg is partly submerged.
