Fun ways to dye Easter Eggs, Swirl Eggs made with Cool Whip and food dye such a fun and easy way to make Easter fun for Kids and Adults . jpgFun Easter Egg Tips ~ How to Dye Easter Eggs With Cool Whip

A few years ago we shared with you How To Dye Easter Eggs With Shaving Cream,  The eggs turned out amazing but there was some concern about IF you could eat eggs that have been rolled in shaving cream? So this year we did the same concept, but used Cool Whip to see how the eggs would turn out.  I showed you how to make them in a Facebook LIVE video if any of you missed it, feel free to jump on and watch it!

I think the first question would be, is there a difference when you use Cool Whip (instead of shaving cream)?  For the most part no, but the eggs did turn out a little lighter in color and not as bold, but we where still happy with our results!

First  spread a layer of Cool Whip in the bottom of a pan or glass dish, about 1/2 an inch thick. Smooth it out with the back of a spoon. Use food coloring and make drops of color across the surface of the cool whip. Remember not to many colors in one spot or they mix and make brown. Take a skewer or knife and swirl the colors a little bit to make a pattern. Put on your gloves at this point, so you do not end up with  rainbow hands for the next 3 days.

Gently roll the Easter Egg in a straight line from one side to the other.

Carefully pick up the Easter Egg and gently place it in an egg carton or on cardboard so it will not roll. You can leave it there till the shaving cream starts to dry up. Usually about 10-15 minutes and you can then clean it.

To clean it take a paper towel and gently wipe off the shaving cream off the egg. Don’t worry the food coloring has already done its magic.

Easter Eggs fun ways to dye Easter Eggs, Did you know you can do it with RICE and Food Color and it turns out amazing, Easter hacks, Speckled Eggs, Popular tricks Mess Free Easter Eggs ~ Made with dry rice and food coloring, Speckled Eggs

If you want to watch us make these on video, we did a live facebook on how to make Mess Free Easter Eggs With Dry Rice and Food Coloring.  Hope you enjoy it!

My friend Marcee sent me a link to a kit were you dye Easter Eggs with rice and coloring.  She knows we always do fun egg dying projects each year with our kids.  The kit looked cool, but I wondered if I would just use supplies from my kitchen to get the same effect?  The kids and I tried it out and it worked, they come out so FUN!

To make these Speckled Easter Eggs you will need:

Place 1/4 of a cup of dry rice into a small plastic bowl, add 5-8 drops of food coloring and shake the rice so it is coated. Quickly add your egg, close with a lid and twirl and shake. It should only take about 30 seconds or less of shaking for you egg to be coated.  If it is not dark enough you can add a few more drops of of color.   I did four containers of rice one for each color, and for each egg I added a few more drops of color. The rice can be used over and over but dries out between each egg.

If you only add a FEW drops of color and shake right away the egg will be bright and colorful and coated, and come out DRY so no messy fingers.  If you don’t add enough the eggs will only have a few speckles on them, BUT if you add to much the egg will come out rich in color and beautiful but wet and messy and will get all over your hands. I loved the MESS FREE option so we stuck with about 8 drops. Easter Eggs fun ways to dye Easter Eggs, Did you know you can do it with RICE and Food Color and it turns out amazing, Easter hacks, Speckled Eggs, Popular tricks
