If you’re looking for a fun Easter activity to do this weekend, look no further! Decorating and dying Easter eggs is a festive tradition. However, it has largely been replaced by simply purchasing hollow plastic eggs and filling them with candy. But that fun Easter tradition shouldn’t stop here! Participate in some old fashioned fun by learning how to dye Easter eggs in this edition of the Center Pointe Apartments blog.
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- Hardboiled eggs – Use the Food Network’s directions, but skip the peeling step
- 1 cup of hot water
- 2 tablespoons of white vinegar
- 10 to 20 food coloring drops
- Old newspapers
- Slotted spoon
- Cereal bowl
- Lay out plenty of old newspapers across your table or counter top to catch any spills.
- Pour 1 cup of hot water into a cereal bowl, or any bowl that allows you to submerge an egg.
- Add 2 tablespoons of white vinegar.
- Add 10 to 20 drops of food coloring to the water and vinegar mixture.
- Repeat steps 2 through 4 for each color you want to use.
- Dunk hardboiled eggs in the dye you’ve just made. Let the eggs sit submerged for 5 minutes. Let them soak longer for a darker color.
- Use a slotted spoon to scoop the eggs from the bowls of dye, and place them in the egg carton to dry.
- Once the eggs have dried, you can use the them as decorations for your Easter dinner.
Learning how to dye Easter eggs is simple, but it’s a fun tradition that people of all ages can enjoy. Ask the older members of your family if they enjoyed dying Easter eggs as a child. You may be surprised at the memories it will stir up for them and the stories they’ll begin to share.
