Method
  • Carefully wrap hard-boiled eggs in paper towels and secure them tightly.

  • You can secure the paper towels with twist-ties, but I didn't feel this step was exactly necessary.
  • Place the wrapped eggs onto a create-safe surface, or onto more paper towels.
  • Now, comes the fun part!

Tie-Dyeing Easter Eggs with Paper towels

  • Have kids drop food coloring onto the towel-wrapped eggs, mixing and adding colors as desired.

  • Kids can add more or less coloring to create different effects, mixing and blending colors as they go.
  • Once kids are happy with the colors added spray the wrapped eggs with vinegar until fully saturated.

  • These eggs turned out absolutely stunning, and they were so easy to make!
Rosie and Jewel had so much fun and we also got to skip the awful vinegar smell that comes with traditional egg dyeing.

Extend the Fun
  • Use more or less food coloring to create different effects.
  • Turn this into a lesson in color theory by using two food dye colors that come together to make a new color.
