We love coloring Easter eggs at our house and every year I try a different method. This is one of my favorite ways of dying eggs and it is very easy!
All you need are 3 ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry, vegetable oil, vinegar and liquid food coloring. Oh, and eggs! Start by hard boiling your eggs.
Next, add 1/4 teaspoon of oil, 1/4 teaspoon vinegar and one or two drops of food coloring into a small bowl. Use a separate bowl for each color. I did experiment with two colors per bowl but more than that and the colors get a bit muddy.
Roll the egg around with a spoon until it is well covered with color.
Then wipe it dry with a paper towel. Yes, your paper towel will get very messy, and your fingers a bit too! Actually, I found that the oil kept the color from sticking to my fingers too badly. It washed right off.
Aren't they beautiful? I was able to color a dozen eggs using only a few drops of each ingredient.
This a great activity sure to please your kids. Plus you'll have the prettiest eggs ever!
