The easy way.
If you are not in the mood to poke tiny holes in each end and blow the egg out, then this might work better for you.
Take the point of tiny scissors (I like cuticle scissors) and poke little holes in an oval shape close to the size you want the finished opening to be - you don't have to be exact.
Very gently begin cutting cradling the entire egg in the palm of your hand for support.
Throw away the oval piece you removed
Just dump the egg into a bowl and you can use it for whatever you want to.
What you really want is the shell so you can have fun decorating it.
You don't need to have children around to decorate eggs. I have no kiddies around and I love to play with Easter eggs!
So what do you do with egg shells with big holes in them?
First use acrylic paint and paint them any color you like
Then decorate to your heart's content!
One of my favorite things to do with these eggs is to use the cut out for family pictures. Like this one of DH
You could also cut out the bottom instead of the center and make something like this with tulle coming out the bottom
The possibilities are endless.
Just have fun!
