Do you know what’s the best thing about these beautiful Easter eggs? You can paint them with your children, and second, they’re edible! Your entire family can enjoy hard boiled eggs, deviled eggs, in a salad or simply make delicious sandwiches.
The watercolor effect is achieved with edible food coloring. I promise that you and your children will have a great time and that this Easter, each egg will be a work of art.
Also you will one cup per color that you choose to use. To achieve the different shades, all you have to do is dilute the color with water: the more water you add, the lighter the tone. Tip: start with the most intense color and then add more water, or play with other shades.
Another pro tip: cover the surface where you paint the Easter eggs with a plastic tablecloth and have your children wear a plastic apron or old clothes. That way you won’t stress out if they get dirty.
Step by step instructions to paint these watercolor-effect Easter eggs
These beautiful Easter eggs are so easy to make:
- Pre boil eggs and then set aside at room temperature.
- Add a few drops of food coloring gel in ½ cup of water.
- Hold the eggs by the ends and with a teaspoon, drop a little of the colored water on top of each one, trying to allow the excess colored water to fall back into the cup.
- Continue diluting the colors with water and coloring each egg until they look as if painted them with watercolors. Make as many color combinations as you want!
- Allow the eggs to dry on a tray. Once they dry completely, use them to decorate your Easter table.
We wish you a Happy Easter!
