(I have to insert that the paragraph above was written by my fifth grader. I have learned to embrace her presence and put her to work on some of her first tasks of work and helping mom out. Normally she helps by picking up toys or watching her younger siblings, but today I gave her a stab at writing an introductory paragraph to our Easter egg rice post. I’d say she did a pretty good job!)
Happy Easter and happy dyeing!
Many of these supplies you likely have in your home. I think you could make these without shopping, but below are the four supplies and ingredients you need!
Riced Dyed Easter Eggs Supplies:
- 1 Dozen Hardboiled Eggs
- 6 Cups White Rice
- Food Coloring (6 assorted colors)
- 6 Sandwich Size Baggies
How to Dye Easter Eggs with Rice:
First, hard boil your eggs on your own. There are many recipes online for making the best hardboiled eggs – I like the way we hardboiled eggs in this post, Reversed Easter Egg Deviled Eggs.
Once you have cooled hard boiled eggs, place one cup of rice into each baggie and add 7-8 drops of food coloring into each one. Close bag and squish the rice around so all the color mixes in well.
Once mixed well, open up and place one hard-boiled egg inside. Close bag and shake the bag around until you have your desired color.
You will repeat step 2 until all the eggs are colored. Have fun mixing two or three colors or make a fun rainbow egg with all the colors.
After all eggs are complete, place back in carton or on paper towels to dry and store in refrigerator. You can check out our drying rack tutorial if you want to make your own.
