Materials Needed: 3 dozen eggs, food coloring, vinegar, hot water, measuring cups, several cups to hold dye, spoon

Step 1: Hard boil 3 dozen eggs.

Step 2: Mix 1 teaspoon of vinegar with 1 cup of water and 7 drops of food coloring. Begin with the primary colors, red, blue, green and yellow. Place 1 egg in each cup and lift each egg periodically to check on the color you desire. We used this handy color mixing chart to get the exact colors for the ombre effect.

Step 3: Dye three eggs in each color and let dry completely. Arrange your eggs in the center of the table and you’re done!
