Easter Egg Dye And Race

Easter Egg Dye

Easter Egg Dye

One of our family Easter Traditions is to hard boil lots of white eggs. We then spend some time together dipping them in Easter egg dye - which is probably just food coloring.

Some times we paint them or get a bit fancier with out decorations, but really we just want lots of colored eggs, and they will be destroyed by the end of the day!

The next day we pack up a picnic and head up to one of our local mountains and have Easter Egg Races rolling them down the hill!

The winning eggs get eaten for lunch, the rest have usually smashed on the way down.

It's great fun and the day is filled with laughter and hilarity.

Easter Egg Dye
by: Annie Desantis

Hi Darleen,
Thank you for entering our Easter Activities For Children Contest, I love the idea of your Egg Rolling!

In your case just using simple food coloring would be fine, as most of your eggs are not intended to last! If you add vinegar to the water, it helps the dye to set.

I like using the Ateco Food Coloring Gels as you get a brighter clearer color and they last without fading if you are decorating eggs for Easter Gifts or want to keep them.

They are also better for painting as it is not so runny, so you have much better control.

PAAS also do dye tablets that you drop in water, maybe this is what you have used? They also have lots of kits for decorating Easter Eggs, which make for easy Easter Crafts.

Thanks again for your entry,

Good luck!
Annie D :)

Click N Kids would have to be one of my subscribers most popular programs, and from what they say, it is mostly because the kids have fun while they are learning. In fact they don't even realize they are learning! Click N kids are using the Looney Tune Characters now in their phonics program, which of course kids just love.
