  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.

  2. 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.

  3. This looks amazing. can I ask what you do with your eggs do u eat them?
    how long do they last if they are not eaten. thanks

    • Hi Katie!
      Yes! You can eat them. Store eggs in the refrigerator up to a week before eating. Peel and eat the boiled eggs in your favorite egg recipe. 🙂

  4. Have you cooked your colored rice after? Got a colorful treat?

    • No. I haven’t really thought about what to do with all of that beautiful rice, just yet. There is definitely potential there. Have you ever made colored cooked rice or something similar?

  5. I am going to put the colored rice in a clear bottle as a sensory toy for my son!

    • That is perfect! Eventually, I will have to do a follow up project for all of the colored rice. It’s a shame to let it all go to waste. 🙂

      • You could also put it in a deep tub as a sensory toy. Put hidden treasures in the rice…let your child run their hands thru it to find the toys…there could be some dye transfer, but it would be fun!

        • Yes! The kids would love that! I was thinking that one of those I Spy bottles would be fun too! Place little trinkets in a bottle, fill with rice and look for treasures as you turn the bottle. You all are so clever. I’m going to have to do a follow up post with all of these awesome ideas.

        I was thinking you could probably use it to make mosaic pictures
