Oh my, who besides me gets excited about the pretty Easter colors?  I love Easter, the time of year, the rebirth, the fun and excitement in the little ones' eyes!  Pastel colors, everything in bloom, weather is wonderful!

Easter is on April 12th, so we have some time to prepare!

This blog is a journal of sorts for me, a guide for things I want to keep on hand to return to for information. I guess it is a journal that I also share.  Today's topic Dying Easter Eggs!

Instructions etc.

Assorted Food Colors & Egg Dye

Mix 1/2 cup boiling water, 1 teaspoon vinegar and 10 to 20 drops food color in a cup to achieve desired colors.  Repeat for each color.  Dip hard-cooked eggs in dye for about 5 minutes.  Use a slotted spoon, wire egg holder or tongs to add and remove eggs from the dye.

  1. I love Easter and always LOVED dying Easter eggs with the kids. I also handpainted a lot of them years ago. Not sure I will get my Easter stuff dragged out this year with the move and all.

    Thanks for all the suggestions and ideas, Dolly. xo Diana

    1. Hey Diana,
      I fully understand that moving is a huge undertaking. I'm still to this day going through boxes that I've stashed out of the way until later with everything going on around here.
      Easter is a beautiful season and one of my favorites! Have a great week and I can't wait to see your new place!
      xoxo Dolly

  2. My daughter is 28 years old and we still have to dye eggs! Haha. I like doing them in rice.
    Place dry rice in a baggy, add a few drops of food coloring, drop in the egg and shake around. I makes a pretty colored egg and Magically, your fingers come out clean!

    1. I love that idea! Going to try it too!  Thanks!  Yep mine are grown and still love it too!  I'm so glad and hope they none, yours or mine ever grow out of it!
