Subscribe to WWMJ Ellsworth Maine on

I have ready that for a quality life traditions and experiential fun is key. This must be why my family is so happy because we have many traditions and come Easter time it’s coloring Easter eggs.  I have done this since I can remember. It isn’t hard, you don’t have to be particularly artistic and when you do it with your family it can really be fun.

Here is what you’ll need:

  • A dozen or so, white eggs, hard boiled
  • Very hot water
  • Cider vinegar
  • Food coloring
  • Crayons
  • Paper towels
  • 4 or 5 spoons
  1. Hard boil your eggs in advance.  Hard boiling and egg takes approximately 20 minutes from the time the water begins to boil.
  2. I generally  let the eggs sit out a short while from the fridge to let them warm before boiling so they don’t crack as much.  No worries though, cracked eggs can still be colored as food color, crayons  and vinegar are nontoxic.
  3. Once your eggs are done, drain them and refill the pan with cold water. do this several times and let them set.  Quick cooling will make them easier to peel when you are ready to eat them.
  4. Set your eggs aside in the fridge. Get out some nice deep mugs or cups and fill them with 2/3rd hot water, a tablespoon of vinegar and your desired color of food coloring. To make purple mix red and blue, to make orange red and yellow.  If you get the multipack there are usually color mixing directions on the back.
  5. Now take out your eggs, paper towels and crayons cause you are ready to go!
  6. Once your pattern is on your egg just dip in a color and pat dry when it gets to the shade you want. remember if you are double dipping for effect to start with your lightest color first.
