- Add 1 tsp of vinegar to 1 cups of hot tap water in a separate cup (large enough to cover the eggs) for each color of dye desired.
- Add a few drops of food coloring to each glass.
- Bend some floral arranging wire as a dipper.
- Have a spoon or two handy.
- Dip/dunk eggs in colors.
- Allow to dry before handling or applying stickers.
- Have fun with mixing food coloring colors to make different colors.
- We used 5-8 drops of food coloring for our egg colors.
- To make decorations or writings on eggs, use crayons, as the wax won't wash off with the dye.
- The longer you leave the egg in the dye, the bolder the color. We let our eggs sit in the dye for a few minutes, while we colored our next egg with crayons.
- We let the eggs dry on our cookie cooling racks.
