We all love chocolate around here - and Easter, is a frightening time of the year for a chocoholic ...Easter egg chocolate tastes so good !! ...This year, we thought we would try egg-dyeing for a fun, non-chocolate angle to Easter. I was always put off by the "blowing out the egg" part of the process so when I discovered you can use hard boiled eggs, it was so easy. I was surprised by HOW much the kids loved it...
The dye was just 1/2 tsp food colouring, 3/4 cup hot water and 1 tbsp white vinegar. White eggs would be easier to dye with paler colours, but for brown you just leave them in a little longer.
What inspired this weekend craftiness ? Martha, of course. For more polished egg-dyeing inspiration, please make sure you turn to Martha Stewart (who even has released an iPad app this year - Egg Dyeing 101.....The app you never knew you needed)..
