Hard Boiled Eggs cooked and cooled.

For each color you make you will need:
1/2 cup boiling water

1 Teaspoon white vinegar

20 or more drops of liquid food dye

** We used twenty drops you could use more for a more vibrant color. With twenty drops there was less staining on Little Miss Toddlers hands.

So in a coffee mug or container of your choice add the boiling water, vinegar and food coloring color(s) of your choice.

To color, the eggs just place the in the egg dye and let them soak. Shorter times result in pastel colors and longer times will result in vibrant colors.

We had never done them without a kit but I feel like I could control how much staining Little Miss Toddler would have on her hands by making it myself.What little staining there was washed right of in the bath.
