Although there are many ways to make Easter eggs, one method is to dip boiled eggs into food coloring. You need a large pan, eggs, several coffee cups, food coloring, vinegar, water, a spoon, and an egg holder or paper towel./

  1. Boil the eggs

    Place the eggs in a pan, and cover them with cold water. Put the pan on the stove, and turn the heat on high. When the water begins to boil, turn off the heat and cover the pan. Wait 20 minutes.

  2. Rinse the eggs

    Run cold water in the pan until the eggs are cool.

  3. Prepare coloring

    Decide what colors to use, and choose a cup for each color. Fill each cup halfway with water. Add 1 tablespoon of vinegar along with around 20 drops of food coloring.

  4. Dip eggs into food coloring

    Gently lower the eggs into the cups of food coloring.

  5. Remove eggs

    Watch the eggs carefully. When they reach the desired shade, remove them with a spoon and place them on a paper towel or egg holder to dry.

  6. Refrigerate the eggs

    Put eggs in the refrigerator immediately after drying. This is particularly important if you intend to eat them after the Easter festivities.
