How to Dye Easter Eggs With Food Coloring

Print Friendly


My girls have been begging me to dye Easter Eggs so I though I would share with you how we dye them without the kit! My girls loving add the food coloring, and we can make them the whole month long without paying $4.00 for the little tablets!

What You Need

  • 12 Hard-boiled eggs (or more if desired)
  • Paper towels or newspaper
  • Bowls or cups deep enough to completely submerge an egg (mugs work great)
  • Tongs, egg dipper, or spoon
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • Liquid food coloring (about 20 drops per color)

1. Start with cooled hard-boiled eggs. (Find out how we make the perfect hard boiled egg HERE)

2. Protect your surface by covering with a sheet of newspaper or paper towel.

3. Fill container with the mixture of water, vinegar, and food coloring.

4. Place your egg on a spoon and dunk it, turning occasionally so both sides get color. Keep in liquid for up to 5 minutes, leave in longer for a darker color.

5. Carefully remove the egg and set aside to dry.
