Dyeing Easter eggs is a tradition in a lot of homes.  I know that my kids look forward to it every year.

The process can get a bit messy though. You come out of it with purple, blue, & pink fingers – and sometimes even your table can end up with splatters of color all over it.

To avoid the messiness, here’s what you do.  First, line your work surface with a few layers of newspaper. I always go for layers because it gives the table more protection from the colors seeping through.

My favorite tip though is this – place your hard boiled eggs inside of a wire whisk & use that to dip your eggs in the color solution.

You can buy cheap whisks at the dollar store if you don’t want to use one of the whisks you already have on hand.  It works SO great, y’all.  Those little plastic dippers that come in the packages just don’t work well – but the whisk trick works perfectly every single time.
