Step 2

Place one colored dye tablet into each container. For bright, vivid colored eggs, add 3 tbsp. of vinegar to each dye container. If you want your eggs to be standard colors, use lemon juice instead of vinegar.


Step 3

Put an egg into the wire egg dipper, and gently place it into a dye container. Leave the egg in the dye until the egg is the desired color. The color of the egg will be determined by how long you leave it in the dye container. For lighter eggs, take it out sooner.

Step 4

Place the eggs in the holes in the kit tray to allow them to dry before handling them.
