Artsy Kids: Coloring Easter Eggs

Posted on

We always color Easter Eggs the day before Easter at our house, and we always buy the kits at the local store to do so.  This year, however, I decided to make my own dye at home using a method I found on Pinterest (yes, I am a Pinterest addict!).  It was so easy to make, and the eggs turned such bright, bold colors!

Here are the directions:

1.  Pour 1/2 cup of water into plastic or glass cups.

2.  Add 20 drops of food coloring (40 for yellow).  Stir.

3.  Add 1 tablespoon white vinegar.  Stir.

4.  Add boiled eggs and color to desired brightness.  The longer you leave them in, the bolder the color!

Lessons in patience…

We used glue dots and rubber bands to get some neat effects on our eggs.

And here are lots of pictures of our beautiful eggs…I did warn you ahead of time that there are lots of pictures, right?

We even mixed our colors at the end.  Red and yellow make orange, green and blue make turquoise.  Pretty fun!

This is what you get when you mix all the colors!

Be sure to protect all surfaces and clothing…and hands!  The food coloring will stain!  Example…
