egg coloring for easter!

Easter is just a few days away and a great family project we do every year is egg dying.  We do this the few days before Easter so that we can eat them after wards in the coming days.  All kiddos love this project but it can get messy so i use a large Rubbermaid container to keep the splashes from getting away from the eggs.

white eggs
food colouring
bowls big enough to submerge eggs
*boil a dozen eggs for 12 minutes until hard boiled.  Set aside.
*mix 1 cup of boiled water with 1/4 cup of vinegar in a bowl and add 20 drops of food colouring.  Do this for yellow, red and blue(primary colours).

*put your bowls, eggs and whisks in a Rubbermaid bin for the kiddos to colour the eggs how they choose.  If the eggs are still hot they will dry faster and make it fun for double dipping and colour variations. The whisks are great for putting the eggs in and preventing them from getting broken by little ones who aren't so gentle.
Happy Easter!
