How to Color Eggs Using Food Coloring

Sherri Osborn
You don't have to spend a small fortune to buy supplies to color your hard boiled eggs, you can use items you probably already have in your kitchen.

  • Age Guideline: 3 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

    The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

    Materials Needed:

    In a coffee cup, mix together a 1/2 cup of water at room temperature, 1 tablespoon of vinegar, and several drops of food coloring. I used about 20 drops of each color, but you can adjust this however you like. Prepare several different colors in this manner.

    Carefully place one egg in each cup of food coloring. Watch the eggs carefully and remove them when they reach the desired shade. Use a spoon to remove the egg and place it in an egg holder or on a paper towel to dry.
