What you’ll need:

  • Carton of hard-boiled eggs
  • Food coloring or egg dye
  • Vinegar


Mix 1/2 cup boiling water, 1 teaspoon vinegar and 10 to 20 drops food color in a cup to achieve desired colors. Repeat for each color. Dip each hard-boiled egg in dye for about 5 minutes. Use a spoon, wire egg holder or tongs to add and remove eggs from dye. For fun patterns, dip only one part of the egg into a color, let it dry, and then repeat with another color!
