This is a good idea if you do not want to stain your hands with food colouring. Put your egg inside the whisk and dip it into a cup, then take it out when your ready. It's also easier for younger ones to handle.

This is making the best of a messy situation, Easter Egg Dye mess. We put old T-shirts on the girls and took the whole mess outside on the patio cement. It washed away by the next day. The air dried the eggs quickly. Our temp was about 60 degrees F on Holy Saturday when we did these.

This is a great idea! Even if the weather is a little cooler, you could put old sweatshirts on the little ones. As long as it isn't raining or anything, of course. And it gets the kids outdoors for some fresh air, too.

Once your Easter eggs are peeled you lose that pretty color, why not color the eggs after they are peeled and take that color to the dinner table for all to enjoy. I use food coloring so I know it is safe to consume.

If you want that old fashioned country look on your Easter eggs, just use brown eggs, dye them in 1 cup cold water, several drops of food coloring and a tablespoon of white vinegar.

This is an Easter tip for those who color a lot of eggs. Use your mini-muffin pan to hold your eggs so they can dry!

For beautiful dyed eggs, use the purchased tablet kind and follow the package directions except use two tablets per color (Buy two packages).

I know that it costs a bit more than the .99 cent egg dye, but trust me the cups themselves last a long time. We bought the egg dyeing kit that came with the egg cups five years ago, and they are still in perfect condition.

Jazz up your Easter eggs with stickers. Use small mini-stickers and add stars, dots, flowers, etc. to simple colored eggs.
