Decorating Easter eggs can be a fun and creative activity for people of all ages. Here are some steps you can follow to decorate your Easter eggs from Hard-Boiled Eggs. 


  • Hard-boiled eggs
  • White vinegar
  • Food colouring 
  • Cups or bowls
  • Spoon or tongs
  • Paper towels
Optional Extras
  • Stickers
  • markers
  • glitter
  • Googly eyes

Boil your eggs

Place your eggs in a pot and add enough water to cover them completely. Bring the water to a boil and let it boil for about 10-12 minutes. Then turn off the heat and let the eggs cool down before handling them.

Prepare your dye: In a cup or bowl, mix 1/2 cup of hot water, 1 tablespoon of white vinegar, and a few drops of food colouring. Repeat the process for each colour you want to use.

Dye your eggs

Use a spoon or tongs to place an egg in the dye mixture. Let it sit for a few minutes, or until you achieve the desired colour intensity. Remove the egg from the dye and place it on a paper towel to dry. Repeat the process for each egg and colour.

Add decorations

Once your eggs are dry, you can add decorations if you like. You can use stickers, markers, glitter, glue, and other decorations to make your eggs unique.
