- 12 white eggs or more
- red,green, yellow and blue food coloring
- white vinegar
- tap water room temperature
- markers, glue, sparkles, beads, stickers (Whatever your little heart desires to design your eggs with)
Step 1: Place your egg in pot and cover with water
Step 2: Gently boil eggs for about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and pot and allow to cool.
Step 3: In a coffee cup, mix about 20 drops of food coloring with 1 tablespoon of vinegar. Add 1/2 cup room temperature water.
Step 4: Repeat the steps above to make different colors. For example, mix red and blue to get purple, and mix red and yellow to make orange, and mix blue and green to make a turquoise. I think you guys get the idea. don't forget to add the vinegar.
Step 5: Gently lower eggs in the cup with a spoon. The longer you leave the eggs in the dye, the darker the colors will be. Once the egg reaches the desired color, remove from the cup with a spoon and allow to dry. You can put them back in the egg carton or use a cupcake tin.
Step 7: Store your eggs in the refrigerator in the front section so that is easy for the Easter bunny to find them and hide them. (The Easter bunny should check to see if maybe there is an Iphone application to remind you to check on those eggs a little later after the kids go to bed )
Happy Easter from Bam's Kitchen!
