Follow these easy instructions for Easter egg coloring with your toddler or Kindergarten kid.
When you were a kid you probably dyed, colored, painted and decorated Easter eggs yourself. Now is the time to start again ... even if you haven't done it in decades, with our easy instructions how to dye Easter eggs, you and your toddler or Kindergarden kid can make the best eggs ever.
When coloring with the pre-made dye, you use hard-boiled eggs, that you later on can eat.
Our son loves eggs, sunny-side up, scrambled, soft-boiled or hard-boiled, it doesn't matter. He loves them all. Therefore the hardest thing when Easter egg coloring was to keep him from eating them all....
Put each color crystal into a separate mug, add 2 tablespoons vinegar and 1 cup cold water.
Blend and let settle down.
Tip: not all mugs hold 1 cup of water plus an egg, so test beforehand with clean water and a raw egg. Otherwise the colored water will spill all over your table and table cloth.
That was easy, right? Your kids can help you with Easter egg coloring when they are at least 2 years of age and can handle hard-boiled eggs without breaking them. And eating own self-made dyed eggs is even more fun that just buying them at the supermarket.
You can buy the coloring kits in most supermarkets or online at Amazon.com. Just make sure, the dye is food-safe.
