With a sharp knife or kitchen scissors, make a hole about the size of a coin in one end of the eggs.

Traditionally there is a hole at each end and you blow the eggs out. However, larger single holes make the eggs easier to wash out with soap and water. Save the eggs for dinner (remove excess shells)!

Decorate the eggs however you like: dye, stickers or covered in confetti and baking sprinkles using craft glue.
