Easter Traditions – How to Dye Your Own Easter Eggs


Kitchen Fun for Everyone

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.
C. S. Lewis

(1898 – 1963)


Dyeing Easter eggs is a beloved family tradition for many!


Eggs contain the promise of new life, just as Easter reminds us of prophecy fulfilled, the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Children of all ages (even adults) enjoy creating colorful eggs to celebrate Resurrection Sunday. In our home, we like to dye hard-boiled eggs, as they hold up to handling (particularly by little hands) much better than the blown-out ones.

Here’s how to dye your own Easter eggs at home.

Hard-Boil Your Easter Eggs.


Place several eggs in a large saucepan. For the best results, use a pan that is large enough to accommodate all of your eggs in one layer on the bottom. Cover the eggs with lukewarm or cool water. (Stop filling once the water level is about an inch above the top of the eggs.)

Bring water to a full boil on the stove. Boil eggs over high heat for 10 minutes before removing pan from heat. Allow the water to cool completely before handling the eggs.

Chill hard-boiled eggs in the refrigerator until ready to use.
