I’m Dying! A Guide To Coloring Eggs

Coloring Eggs Is Fun.

Bonus: They Are Also A Healthy WIC Food

Dying eggs is the perfect kid-friendly activity. It’s also a great way to get creative and take a break from adulting. It’s a complete bonus that once you are done you have a super nutritious meal or snack ready to eat. Another Bonus: Eggs are also a WIC food.

If you haven’t dyed eggs before (or even if you have and need a refresher), we have created a step-by-step guide with lots of pointers to help you make your eggs all your own. There are even a few tips to help make your colored egg one of the most creative around. At the end of all the fun, there will be lots of yummy recipes to try featuring boiled eggs as the main ingredient.

So let’s roll up our sleeves and have some fun. Then, let’s eat!

A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO COLORING EGGS

STEP 1: GATHER SUPPLIES

Eggs, as many as you want

Food Coloring (or an egg color kit)

Water and Pan and Slotted Spoon or Colander for boiling eggs

Bowls or Cups or other containers for dying eggs. They can be plastic to help make this a more-kid friendly activity, but by all means use what you have.

Vinegar

If you want to make your eggs extra fancy, you can use Crayons, Tape, String

STEP 2: BOIL EGGS

Place eggs in a pot. Cover the eggs completely in an inch of water. Bring the water to boil. Boil eggs, for a fully cooked yolk, for 10 minutes.

STEP 3: DRAIN, COOL EGGS

Drain your eggs using a colander and let them cool completely before dying them. You can cool off hot eggs by running cold water over them. Hot eggs can be harmful for little kids to handle so make sure they have cooled completely before going to the next step.

STEP 4: PREP DYE

To prep egg dye: mix ½ cup of boiling water with a teaspoon of vinegar and about 15 drops of food coloring. You can add more or less food dye depending on the result you would like. Also, mix colors to create new colors. Experiment. This can be fun. Just make sure the dye has cooled before dying the eggs.

BONUS STEP: EGG DECORATION

You can draw a design or picture on your egg with a crayon before you dye your egg. Wherever you place crayon on the egg, the dye won’t show on the egg. You also use tape or string to cover parts of your egg you wish not to dye. Use as much imagination as you wish.

STEP 5: DYE YOUR EGGS

Use a utensil of your choice to emerge the egg into the bowl filled with dye. Let it sit about 5 minutes total and then remove the egg. You can remove the egg with a slotted spoon or tongs. Place your egg back into the egg carton packaging or on a plate to dry.

Store eggs in the refrigerator until ready to eat.

ENJOY!

EGGS ARE NUTRITIOUS

Once you have completed coloring your eggs, you will have lots of hard boiled eggs to make some great recipes.

Eggs are a super healthy ingredient to add to your menu. They are also a WIC-approved ingredient. Eggs provide Protein, have roughly 70 calories per egg and are packed with nutrition, including Vitamin A, Folate, B Vitamins, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Calcium, Zink, Phosphorus and Selenium.

It’s no surprise why many people might choose to start their day with an egg. Eggs, of course, can be enjoyed during any meal.

One of the most popular ways to eat boiled eggs is to make egg salad. You can also add boiled eggs to tuna salad or even halved as a topping inside a lettuce salad. You can also eat them plain for breakfast or chopped up in an egg taco (with a little cheese sprinkled on top). A boiled egg is also perfectly paired on top of avocado toast. Below are a few great recipes we found that you might like.

DELISH EGG RECIPES

  • The first recipe is for Simple Egg Salad Sandwich from the IncredibleEgg.org. Find the recipe here. Also, this recipe for a Mixed Green Salad with Boiled Eggs can be found here.
  • Deviled Eggs – Here is a recipe from the USDA.org. for deviled eggs.

EGGS, A WIC FOOD
