  • You can buy the Easter egg dye or prepare it at home. To DIY Easter egg dye, mix one teaspoon vinegar with 1/4 teaspoon of food colouring. Pour the colouring into 3/4 of a cup of water. It is advisable to use a different cup for each dye and ensure there is enough water in the cup to cover an entire egg.
  • Use tongs, a spoon or your hands to place the eggs in the dye gently. The longer you leave the egg in the dye, the deeper the colour gets. Allow the eggs to dry completely.
  • If you want to add more colours, place the dried eggs in another colour, and repeat the process.
  • Once the eggs are dyed, you can continue to decorate them. There are many fun and easy ideas to decorate Easter eggs at home.
