Colouring Easter Eggs

Things To Do

posted April 1st 2019

We love Easter, it is the best time in the year for my family. In some countries colouring Easter eggs is a tradition passed from generation to generation. We did it every year with my nanny and mum growing up; it brings back a lot of memories of fun and laughter, now every year I make these Easter eggs with my family passing down the family tradition .

Give it a go and have some fun building memories.

You will need:

  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Food colouring
  • Vinegar
  • Water (should be room temperature or warmer than the eggs you are colouring)
  • Oil
  • In a cup, mix together a 1/2 cup of water at room temperature, 1 tablespoon of vinegar, and several drops of food colouring, as many as 20 drops. Please note that the water needs to be warmer than the eggs or they may absorb the water. You can use hot tap water if your eggs are not completely cooled or room temperature water if your eggs are chilled.
    Prepare several different colours in this manner.
    Carefully place one egg in each cup of food colouring
    When your eggs get desired shade use a spoon to remove the egg and place it in an egg holder or on a paper towel to dry. Once the colour is dry, take a cotton ball dipped in oil and spread it over the eggs for a lovely shine.
