:: Coloring Easter Eggs : Mission Complete ::

Tonight we began our weekend with the tradition of coloring Easter eggs.
With Farm Fresh Eggs we sort of already start with colored eggs, but that's just an extra bonus to raising our own.
To change things up a bit this year we used food coloring to dye them instead of those silly little tablets.
Holy Moly did that make a difference in the brilliancy of the colors! It's so simple. 1/2 c. boiling water, 1 tsp. of vinegar, & 10-15 drops of any color combination of food coloring you want to create. 

The kids had fun making designs on a few using a crayon before we dipped them & I loved how different the colors came out depending on whether we were starting with a brown, blue, or cream colored egg.
