How to dye the perfect Easter egg--no kit required!


 

 

What you’ll need:

4 (or more) hard-boiled eggs (ask Mom for help)

4 hard plastic cups or dark mugs (that won’t get stained)

1 pack of food coloring

Large spoon

2 cups boiling water

4 tsp distilled white vinegar

Newspaper or wax paper

 

What you’ll do:

  1. Set out your four cups or mugs on top of newspaper or wax paper.
  2. Fill each cup with 1 tsp vinegar and 10-20 drops of food coloring (depending on how strong you want the color: refer to chart for ratios).
  3. Carefully fill each cup with ½ cup of boiling water.
  4. Using the large spoon, gently drop an egg into each cup, one at a time. Let sit for 5-10 minutes, rotating ever so often to make sure the dye is even.
  5. Using spoon, remove eggs from cups and let dry on wire rack or egg crate. Refrigerate when dry.
  6. See page 83 in the April/May issue for tips on how to decorate your dyed eggs!
