- boiling water
- liquid food colors (green, yellow, red, blue*)
In coloring eggs, add 1 teaspoon vinegar to 1/2 cup boiling water. Add at least 20 drops of desired color. Dip hard boiled eggs in colored water. The longer in the water the deeper the color. Store eggs in refrigerator.
Colors can be mixed to make other colors. (Yellow and red equals orange, red and blue is purple, and so on.)
My daughter likes the tie dyed effect. She'll dip her egg in one color. Let it dry and then put tape around the egg. Then dip the egg into another color. She removes the tape to have a two or multiple-toned egg. You can also draw on the egg with a crayon. The wax resists the food colors and you'll have white places on the egg after dipping.
