Using food colouring to dye Easter eggs is a time-old tradition in our house. It's easy, fun, and I already have all of the ingredients in my kitchen. Easter eggs make for a great spring table decoration. Plus, kids are so darn proud of their coloured eggs—"I did THIS ONE." Your kids will LOVE this activity...
You will need:
Measure 1/2 cup of boiled water into each container. Add 1/2 tsp of white vinegar. Then, add drops of food colouring (For lighter coloured eggs use 5 drops. For bolder coloured eggs use 15 drops).
Using a slotted spoon, gently submerge eggs in food colouring mixture. Let them sit in mixture 2-10 minutes (depending on the colour you wish to get).
Place coloured eggs in egg container to dry.
It's that simple.
