DIRECTIONS

  • If younger kids are helping, boil the eggs ahead of time. Then let the eggs sit 20-30 minutes in the colors you make as instructed below.
  • Wrap uncooked eggs with rubber bands or, draw designs on them with white crayons if desired & place on bottom of pan.
  • Add water until eggs are submerged.
  • Add one teaspoon vinegar.
  • Add desired natural dye material. Use more material for more eggs or for richer color.
  • Bring water to boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes.
  • Once desired color is attained, remove the eggs. (Note: If using red cabbage, the color will not turn blue until it cools off).
  • If you want darker eggs, temporarily remove the eggs and strain the dye through a coffee filter. Cover the eggs with the filtered dye and let them remain in the refrigerator overnight.
