This is always a fun part of Easter, especially for the kids. Egg dying has been done for centuries, so there’s no reason for us to stop now. It’s also much easier than it seems.
All you need is food colouring, eggs, water and vinegar. Boil the eggs for 10 minutes, until hard, then place them in cold water to cool down. In the meantime, mix about 250 ml water with 50 ml white vinegar and add a few drops food colouring of choice. Once the eggs have cooled, place it in the colour mixture and allow to stand for a few minutes – the longer it stands in the colour, the darker it will be. Scoop the egg out and allow to dry on a piece of newspaper. Now the eggs can be painted some more if preferred – floral designs or what ever tickles your fancy – or they can be left plain.
