Easter Egg Tips

When I was a young teen, my mom couldn't find white eggs in the store, so she bought brown eggs for us to color for Easter. We were astonished by the results. The eggs dyed into strong, bold colors just using ordinary food dye. From then on, we always made sure we dyed brown eggs.

Another, more meaningful, tradition is to buy some sticker letters and spell out "Jesus" on some eggs. Boil 5 eggs, allow them to dry thoroughly, and place one sticker each (a "J" on the first, an "E" on the second, and so on). Dye the eggs in food coloring, let the dye dry, then remove the stickers.

If you like, use all natural food coloring; you'll find the directions over at Inspiring Ideas.

Give it a try!

  1. Interesting. I wouldn't have thought brown eggs would color at all.
