Easy Steps In Dyeing Easter Eggs With Food Colouring
You can colour your Easter eggs using so many colouring materials such as natural dyes, crayons, tissue paper, spray paint, etc. But I chose food colouring for a more easy and traditional activity with the kids. Materials:
- hard boiled eggs
- white vinegar
- small bowls or empty cups
- food colour drops (choose the colours you want) Steps:
1. Fill small cups about 1/2 full of water. Don't make it too full or else when you put the eggs in, it will overflow.
2. Add 1 teaspoon of vinegar for every 1 cup of water.
3. Add drops of food colour until you're happy with the shade (it's best to add 2 more drops of food colour when you found the right shade because the egg turns out more what you originally wanted.)
4. Put hard boiled eggs in the small bowl or empty cup (I use plastic thongs to put them in and out of the bowl)
5. Get it out of the colour mix and let it dry. Wipe with vegetable oil (with paper towel) to make a glossier egg.
6. After dyeing, you can design the eggs with crayons, colour pencils, water colours.
