Dyed coloured eggs make great as decorations at Easter and they are so easy to make. You can ever draw on them in crayon to make cool patterns before you dye them.

What you’ll need:

  • hard boiled eggs (less fragile then fresh ones)
  • boiling water
  • white vinegar
  • food colouring


  1. Combine 1/2 cup boiling water, 1 tsp of vinegar and 10 drops of food colouring in a bowl. Make up bowl of different colours.
  2. Place eggs in mixture for 5 minutes, then remove and leave to dry.
  3. Your eggs are ready to display, it’s that easy!

  • Oh these are fun.
    I have a Greek friend who does this and she uses wax from candles to draw designs on them beforehand. They look so pretty when she’s done.


  • We dye Easter eggs as a tradition. Can be a bit of work, but fun and you can cut some leaves and secure and tie the egg in old stocking and add to dye; once done, remove the stocking for a very pretty egg.


  • I have never done this before.


  • Whilst I can’t see any video, this is such a fab, fun, easy activity for Easter.
