Anyone out there intolerant to soy products???
Easter Eggs are famously chocolate but there is just so much chocolate a toddler-sized body can (or should) consume. We made these brightly coloured eggs as children to extend the Easter festivities – we ate them for breakfast or lunch and delighted in having our handiwork on display. The most important part was the satisfaction of creating your own brightly coloured Easter eggs with very little effort, expense or time involved.
What you need:
- - Hard – boiled eggs
- - Food Coloring (a few different colors)
- - White vinegar
- - Water
- - Spoons
- - Coffee Mug
How to make:
1. In a coffee mug, mix about 20 drops of food coloring with 1 tablespoon of vinegar. Add 1/2 cup room temperature water. (Repeat the steps to make different colors.) I know food coloring and toddlers together is a pretty dangerous combination so just get your toddler to watch you drop the food coloring into the mug. They will find it fascinating watching the color spread through the water.
2. Gently lower eggs in the cup. The longer you leave the eggs in the dye, the darker the colors will be. Make sure the egg is dipped into the dye is completely submerged. Once the egg reaches the desired color, remove from the cup with a spoon and place into the egg carton to dry. (your toddler will like doing that!)
3. Once they have dried your toddler may like to decorate them by drawing on the eggs with crayons, felts or even stickers!
4. If your toddler is a fan of eggs they will have a lot of fun cracking their egg open to eat!
