Instructions for Coloring Easter Eggs

If you want to learn how to color Easter eggs then this recipe will give you step by step instructions for coloring and decorating. This is a fun activity for children and their parents to do together. Please note: This activity needs strict adult supervision as it involves the use of boiling water.

What you will need:

    4 cups (able to take boiling water; may be stained with food dye)
    1 teaspoon
    1 large spoon
    Paper towels
    Boiling water
    4 teaspoons of vinegar
    Yellow, green, blue and red food dyes
    Hard boiled eggs
    Decorations - markers, glue, sequins, ribbon, wool, lace, buttons, etcetera

What to do:

    1. If you haven't boiled your eggs then do so by placing them in a saucepan of water. Heat the water until it has been boiling for approximately 15 minutes. Drain the water, then add cold water to cover the eggs and allow to cool.
    2. Half fill each cup with the boiling water.
    3. Add one teaspoon of vinegar to each cup.
    4. Put 20 drops of yellow food dye in one cup. Stir. Repeat with the remaining food dyes in the other cups.
    5. Use the large spoon to carefully lower 1 egg in each cup. Allow it to stand in the cup until the egg is the colour you want it.
    6. Remove the egg from the cup and place it on the paper towel to dry.
    7. When the eggs are dry and cool you can use your marker pens to draw pictures on the eggs. Then decorate them with sequins, stickers, glitter, buttons, bits of lace and ribbon.
    Option 1: You can mix the food dyes to create different colors. Add red and blue to make purple, or red and yellow to make orange.
    Option 2: Use crayons to draw a thick pattern on the egg before placing them in the dye. The dye does not stick to the crayon so it produces a contrasting pattern on the egg.
