Die große Osterei-Malerei

The Fantastic Egg Painting Gadget

How do all the eggs get coloured? Easter fun for handy kids

Mr Rabbit is a proper inventor. He uses planks of wood, wheels, bowls and rods to make an Easter egg painting machine that would delight any child! The hens sit on top and lay the eggs. And now off it goes: the eggs roll into the bowl of hot water, where they are boiled. Then they plop into the dye basin and finally they are decorated with colourful dots and circles. What beautiful eggs! And what an amazing machine!
