One of our favorite Easter traditions is dying and decorating Easter eggs at home. It’s a fun, festive activity to do with children or on your own. There’s no need to purchase a pre-made set when so many of the ingredients can be found in your kitchen cabinet.

Easter Eggs

Easter Eggs Dying

Step 1: Begin by lining a large baking sheet with paper towels and top with wire cooling rack.

Step 2: For each dye bath combine 1/2 cup boiling water with 1 tsp vinegar and 10-20 drops of food coloring in a bowl. Dip hard-boiled eggs in dye bath for 3-5 minutes, extend time for richer color.

Step 3: Use tongs or a slotted spoon to remove eggs and place on wax paper to dry, blot any excess with a paper towel.
