    • Tape or rubber bands

    Get Cracking

    Once you've gathered your supplies, it's time to get cracking making your own beautifully designed Easter eggs. But before you can start dipping, you'll need to start by prepping:

    Step 1: Fill saucepan with water, place on the stove and add your eggs. Bring water to a boil and then reduce the heat and let the eggs simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and add cold water to stop the eggs from cooking - you may need to ask your parents or teacher to help with this part.

    Step 2: Make sure you're wearing an apron or old clothes, because this is one Easter activity that can get messy. Also place old newspapers over the area you'll painting on.

    Step 3: Fill cups halfway with hot water, add 1 teaspoon of vinegar and one teaspoon of food coloring, one for each color you want to use. 

    Design and Dip

    Here comes the fun part! Once your eggs and dye are ready, you can simply place the egg in the color you want, leave it for 5 minutes and when you lift it out with your tongs you will have a perfectly dyed egg! But that's not all, before you start dipping, there are lots of different ways to create different patterns with your eggs, here are just a few ideas that you can mix and match!

    Easter Egg kits come with dye tablets, but you can use plain old food coloringEaster Egg kits come with dye tablets, but you can use plain old food coloring
    • Using a white crayon, write a message or draw a design on the egg before you dip it - when it comes out of the dye the wax will remain white, highlighting the design  against the colored background.
    • You can create stripey designs on your egg by placing rubber bands or tape around your egg before dipping, when you raise it from the dye and remove the bands your egg will have stripes where the bands were!
    • If you place a sticker on the egg before dipping and remove it once it comes out, the shape of the sticker will stand out against the background, try using a star, a fruit or heart if you have it.
    • Once you've lifted your eggs from the dye, place them gently in the empty egg carton to dry. Once they're dry you can hide them for a hunt, place them in a decorative basket, or if you're really hungry, eat them!
