Food coloring Easter Egg Dye
This was the first year we were painting eggs with Miss Milly. I managed to make it to the night before Easter without preparing the eggs and no egg dye. Fabulous. So I boiled the eggs the night before and searched the my favorite fall back, Pinterest, for some way to color these eggs without the help of Paas. Thank goodness I discovered I had the ingredients to make dye. I used 1 cup of water, 2 tablespoons of white vinegar, and food coloring. Whew! I used about 10 drops of food coloring for each color and even mixed a couple to make more than just the primary colors. I was concerned that they would be too light in color and run a whole lot but they actually turned out really well. Mill had so much fun and I used another Pinterest tip of using a wire whisk to put the egg in to make it easier for her to dip them. We had a wonderful relaxing Easter and hope you did too!
