Dyeing Easter Eggs is so much fun for the kids.
I love to dye eggs with my kids. I was lucky enough to have all the ingredients because I ran out of dye around Christmas and had to purchase more. Here’s the recipe straight off the food dye box. I take no credit for it!
How to dye Easter eggs using food coloring.
To do many different colors I did have to adjust the recipe.
Hard boil your eggs (here’s my method for great hard boiled eggs that the shells come off of!)
I did 2 cups boiling water spread out into about 6 cups
3 tsp vinegar added to boiling water
Then pour into your cups that have 10-20 drops of food dye in them.
Let the eggs sit in the colors for 5 minutes or more.
Things we did to get different results in our dyed Easter Eggs
We mixed blue and red to get purple. We then mixed red and yellow to get orange, etc. We had so much fun dyeing our Easter Eggs. We also used a white crayon to write on the eggs. She wrote eggsactly on one, and her name and my name on them too. She also used rubber bands to make bands of color. You can use stickers if you have them. I tried to do dots with the white crayon and since you can’t see it as well while you’re doing it I left holes in my dots. So stickers would work better. Just get creative and use what’s in your house.
