Easter Egg Ice Gems

When I first thought of this idea, I thought it could either go two ways 1.very good or 2. very bad! I am happy to tell you--the outcome exceeded my expectations (in a good way)!!! These are not hard to make, they just take time because you have to wait for every "layer" to freeze!

I really didn't think they would turn out looking like they was almost like they were little crystal gems! You just have to try this!
You need:
-plastic easter eggs (got mine at wal-mart)
-food dye (to color your water)
-an egg carton (to hold your eggs in)
-scissors (is used my kitchen ones)
-something that you can pour your water into a small hole with
poke a hole in the tops of your eggs (I did 18 since I had an 18 egg carton), and for some reason my plastic eggs had little holes, so I sealed that up really tight with some packing tape.
Than, I took four cups and filled them full of water, and added food dye to each...
Next, take a little bit of each color (whichever color you choose) and add a little bit of water to each egg
and of course, leave some room for other layers!
freeze after every layer added. I did three different layers (some I added a tiny layer, others I added a big layer...) After you have frozen your last layer, and they are completely hard as rocks...let them defrost for about 10 minutes and THAN FOR THE BEST PART open them up!!!!
And this is what you will find...a glass gem hidden inside each piece of plastic! I was literally in awe at how beautiful they were!
I almost didn't want them to melt...but when they did it turned the water a bright mix of colors!
