    What you’ll need:

    • Water
    • White vinegar
    • Food coloring
    • Hard-boiled eggs
    • Optional: white crayon, masking tape

     

    Procedure:

    1. Hard-boil eggs; let cool.
    2. Make your own egg dye. Put some food coloring in bowls. For each color, fill separate bowls with ½ cup hot water; add one tablespoon vinegar to each bowl. Mix in food coloring until you get the shade you want.
    3. Before you start dyeing, try these decorating ideas: Draw on the eggs using white crayon; the dye will resist the colored parts and reveal your drawing. Use masking tape strips to block off sections you don’t want dyed for a striped effect. Using stickers (stars, hearts, or round shapes) would give you a different effect.
    4. Dip eggs into coloring dye for a few minutes or until they are the color that your children want. Roll the eggs to make sure they color evenly. Let the eggs dry before adding in a second color.

     

    Design Tip! Dip two-ply tissue paper or paper napkins on the dye, and carefully cut these into smaller pieces. While wet, stick the different-colored tissue paper on the eggs. Let dry. Peel off the dried tissue paper.

     

    After your Easter Egg hunt, peel eggs and enjoy hard boiled eggs with some salt.
