“This is so much fun to do with your kids. The secret is it doesn't take that long! You also need a colander for this. We put ours in the kitchen sink and clean up was a breeze!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 hard-boiled white eggs
  • 12 cup white vinegar
  • vibrant food coloring (we used McCormick Neon Food Coloring)


  1. Place several hard-boiled eggs in a colander in the kitchen sink and splash them with the vinegar.
  2. Drip food coloring on the eggs (I recommended 2 or 3 eggs at a time).
  3. Gently agitate the colander for a few seconds to help the color spread. Let the color set on the eggs for 30 seconds.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 with up to two shades (any more and your colors may get muddy), allowing each to set for 30 seconds.
  5. After the last color has set, give the eggs a light rinse with water and let them drain for a minute or two. Air-dry them on paper towels.
