The Quick, No Mess Way to Dye Eggs

If your like me and want to take part in the Easter festivities and dye eggs with your kids, but the thought of purple, orange and green hands for the next 2 weeks leaves you cringing....then this blog is for you! 

After you have boiled your eggs let them cool and then put 5 to 6 eggs in a colander. Pour around 1/3 cup of white vinegar over the eggs to help the food coloring absorb and stick quicker. 

Squeeze 1 to 2 drops of a single color of food coloring on each egg. We used McCormik Neon Colors for a brighter egg. 

Swirl the eggs around in the colander to coat them with the color. Let set for around 45 seconds. 

Next squeeze 1 to 2 drops of your 2nd color of choice onto your eggs. Swirl your eggs again and then let set for about 1 minute. 

You may choose to stop here or add another color but if you add too many you end up with muddy, brown eggs! After you have let your eggs set for their last time, rinse them gently with water to remove the excess food coloring. Set out to dry. 


Wishing you peace, love and a little pixie dust,
