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.

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