Dyeing eggs is a tradition that symbolizes Easter and the beginning of spring. I found this one on the blog Spend With Pennies. It looked like it was simple and fun - and it was! This would be a great craft to do with small children, since everything used is a food product.
· Hard-boiled eggs
· 1 tub of whipped topping
· Food coloring
· White vinegar
· 4 disposable bowls or cups
1. Pour enough vinegar in a bowl to submerge your hard-boiled eggs and let sit for a few minutes while you prep your dye.
2. In the disposable bowls or cups, put a few teaspoons of vinegar and several drops of the food coloring.
3. Spread the whipped topping on a plate or cookie sheet with edges.
4. Drizzle the vinegar/food coloring mix over the whipped topping – make sure not to mix the colors together.
5. Using a knife or toothpick, swirl the food coloring through the whipped cream.
6. Dry off your eggs, put one egg into the colored whipped cream and roll through with a spoon.
7. Lay your rolled egg, with whipped cream still on it, onto a plate or piece of plain paper.
8. Continue steps 5 through 7 with the remainder of your eggs.
9. Let the eggs sit for about 15 minutes to absorb the food dye.
10. Rinse whipped cream off eggs off with cold water, dry and enjoy!
