Decorating Easter Eggs is always so much fun! My family and I have been doing it for years. It’s such a nice and creative activity to do with your family/ friends, especially if you have little kids! My brother and I are in our 20s and we still love doing it! I don’t think it will ever get old. See below what my family does when we decorate Easter eggs!
What You’ll Need:
- Eggs (hardboiled) We had 20 eggs
- Egg dish
- Food coloring (I use McCormick Assorted)
- Cups for dye
- Whisks or spoons to place egg into dye
- Sharpies or crayons for decorating
*This year we kept it simple and just did colored eggs*
What To Do:
- Cook your hardboiled eggs the night before so they have enough time to cool.
- Mix ¼ cup of boiling water, 1tsp of vinegar and desired food coloring into each cup.
Colors We Used:
- Red = 20 drops red dye
- Orange = 17 drops yellow dye, 3 drops red dye
- Yellow = 20 drops yellow dye
- Green = 20 drops green dye
- Blue = 20 drops green dye
- Lavender = 2 drops blue, 1 drop red and 1 drop green dye
- Pretty Purple = 15 drops blue and 5 drops red
- Strawberry Pink = 20 drops red, 1 drop blue and 1 drop green dye
- Place egg onto spoon or whisk and drop it into dye, stirring occasionally.
- No specified time for how long you should keep the egg in the dye. Continually check until you get your desired color brightness or darkness. (The longer the egg is in the dye the darker the color will be).
- Take egg out and place onto egg dish to dry or decorate with sharpies or crayons.
- Continue process until all eggs are completed.
- Let them all dry.
- Enjoy them on Easter!
