Egg Dying

We dyed eggs a little differently this year! With Cool Whip! (You have to say it like Stewie of course. Addison had no idea why we were saying it like that. Ha!) This is seriously the best way to dye eggs. Waaayyyy better than using the dye tablets with vinegar that you have to let the eggs soak in for basically an hour to get the color you want. And these turn out so much cooler too!

Here’s what we used (instructions at the end!):

Brian made the boys watch a YouTube tutorial first.

I think they paid attention. A little. They kinda understood what to do.

I think Logan ate more Cool Whip than he used for egg dying.

Then Mason tried to eat an entire egg. Kids are crazy y’all.

After we cleaned up we had to eat the rest of the Cool Whip. Straight from the container of course. The way my mom taught me.

Otis got some too.IMG_7917

So I’m going to teach you how to do this. Because you will want to do it next year.

  1. Boil your eggs like normal
  2. Soak eggs in a vinegar bath. This will help the color stick
  3. Make the dye trays – fill with Cool Whip, then drop food coloring throughout.
  4. Swirl the food coloring around with a toothpick.
  5. Roll the eggs around in the Cool Whip so they are coated.
  6. Let the eggs sit for 15 minutes or so.
  7. Rinse the eggs off with cold water.

Seriously that’s it. Best part . . . it’s edible. Which is a good thing because Logan ate at least half of his Cool Whip. Ha!
