Rice Dyed Eggs

This was a new one for me! How fun is it to even think about rice to dye eggs? This project is simple as you will see in the steps in the video below.

For a quick how-to all you need are baggies, dry rice, hard-boiled eggs, and gel food coloring. Put rice in a baggie, add color, and mix. Then add your egg and shake, shake, shake. It comes out so lovely!

Marbled Eggs

I have seen this project using shaving cream, but this option utilizes whipped cream instead. What a great way to use something edible!

For this you spread your whipped topping, add gel food coloring and swirl a bit, and place your egg on top. Use a spoon to fully cover the egg and let it sit for a bit (15 minutes or more). Rinse off your eggs, and voila! Your eggs are marbled. See full instructions in the video below.

  • AM - This is such a good idea!! This will be the first year we dye eggs with our girls at home so can’t wait to try this!

  • Amanda - So many fun ideas! We will probably try the rice–but while outside because I can’t deal with rice all over the floor!

  • Jennifer - It’s actually not messy with it being in the little baggies. It’s cleaner than the traditional way of dying for sure.

  • Patricia - These are such great ideas! We always do things the same way so I’m going to pin this!
