Tie-Dye Easter Eggs
Total Time 1 hour Ages preschooler

Psychedelic eggs add a fun, funky touch to a traditional basket. And the decorating technique is so simple, even the littlest egg artists can help.

What you'll need

  • A colander
  • 10 hard-boiled white eggs
  • 1/2 cup of white vinegar
  • Vibrant food coloring (we used McCormick Neon Food Coloring)

How to make it

  1. Tie-Dye Easter Eggs - Step 1

    Place several hard-boiled eggs in a colander in the kitchen sink and splash them with the vinegar.

  2. Tie-Dye Easter Eggs - Step 2

    Drip yellow food coloring on the eggs.

  3. Tie-Dye Easter Eggs - Step 3

    Gently agitate the colander for a few seconds to help the color spread. Let the color set on the eggs for 30 seconds.

  4. Tie-Dye Easter Eggs - Step 4

    Repeat steps 2 and 3 with up to two shades (any more and your colors may get muddy), allowing each to set for 30 seconds.

  5. Tie-Dye Easter Eggs - Step 5

    After the last color has set, give the eggs a light rinse with water and let them drain for a minute or two. Air-dry them on paper towels.
