    hardboiled egg, colored (we dye them in mugs of boiling water with store-bought dye, with a little vinegar added to the water)
  • bacon grease or salad oil, for rubbing


  • When hardboiled colored eggs are completely cool and dry, rub them with bacon fat or a little vegetable oil, to produce a nice shine.
  • Arrange them in an attractive basket or platter lined with green Easter "grass".
  • Keep eggs cool until it's time for the Easter Egg Hunt.
