Easter Craft – Egg Dye from the Target Dollar spot

Materials Needed:

  1. Wooden Eggs – I found mine at the target dollar spot for $3.00
  2. Some food color – I used food coloring gel
  3. Vinegar
  4. Gloves – We didn’t use them, but i recommend this
  5. A science kit – I found mine on amazon. Plastic cups and spoons will work just as well. Kids love spraying or dropping water so if you have old spray bottles or syringes to drop water that will make it extra fun. We use our science kit for many of our crafting projects so it comes in handy!


  1. First we laid everything out on a table that was covered in paper. Make sure your little one has an old paint shirt on, and have them put on rubber gloves. Then I had my son practice pouring vinegar into cups. Three year olds love pouring liquids so just this task was very fun for him. Then we filled little test tubes with vinegar and food coloring. Once it was mixed well we placed the mixture to container where he placed the wooden egg.
  2. Using a syringe, he squeezed the color mixture onto the egg. The eggs sat in the mixture for a couple minutes.
  3. We took them out and allowed them to air dry. Now we have colorful eggs to decorate at easter time.
