  1. Love this idea! This year I am in charge of coloring eggs with the kids and with an age range (12yrs to 4yrs) this might be a great multi age method. I compiled a list of ten great egg coloring ideas on my blog and will be including yours!!

    • Thank you so much for including me in your post! You’ll have to let me know how the egg coloring fun goes with that range of ages. I also wanted to share that I just uploaded a couple of videos on my “how to” to help the kids (and us caretakers) with a better visual. You know…in case the kids need it.

    After the eggs are done is the due set or will it come off onto your hand if you try to peel it a day later to eat it? My kids like to dye but they love to eat the eggs too!


    • It isn’t set right away. You’ll definitely want to let the color dry. Pick them up with your fingertips so you don’t smudge your creations and set them down back into the egg carton to dry. I would give it a day and then enjoy eating them. I will go and add a note to the post. Thank you for commenting.
