ITEMS NEEDED

Hard Boiled Eggs

Plastic Bags

White Vinegar

Food Coloring

Rice (optional)

Cody will be working a lot leading up to Easter so he’s going to miss all the Easter egg dying fun (luckily he won’t miss the egg hunt), so we decided to dye eggs early so that he could be a part of it. I wanted Iris to be able to dye the eggs too, so we opted for a mess-free option that even an 11 month old could do. And let’s be honest, even at 2 years old, I don’t think Hazel would have had the patience to let the eggs sit in a cup of water long enough for them to become colored (Ha!), so this really was perfect for both girls!

Step 1: Put a few drops of food coloring into the ziplock bag. (Can let your child do this step. They can add two different colors to learn about color mixing.) Note: if you use natural food coloring like we did, your eggs will be a lighter color than non-natural food coloring.

Step 2: Add some white vinegar to the ziplock bag.

Step 3: Have your child drop the egg into the bag and zip it up.

Step 4: Shake, shake, shake

Let eggs sit in the bag for a little while then take them out and set them in the egg carton to dry.

Optional: You can add rice to the bags to give your eggs a speckled look. When you’re all done, you can lay the colored rice on parchment paper to dry. Once it’s dry, you’ll have colored rice for your child to play with. Perfect for a sensory tub! To make the rice sensory tub Easter themed, just toss in some plastic eggs for you child to play with in the rice 🙂

    This worked amazingly. I have never heard of this technique and it was perfect for my 6 and 4 year old. They looked so cool. Thanks!
