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!

  • So they still have egg inside the shell? Wouldn’t that get really smelly really quickly?


  • Coloured eggs at Easter are just so beautiful and the pastel colours are soft and subtle.
