Cracked Shell Egg Dyeing is such a fun way to dye eggs this spring! It’s so easy with just a few simple steps!
Last week marked the official start of spring! So I decided to get crackin’ on some Easter eggs a little early this year! The cracked shells make a really fun design on the eggs. Some people think they look like dinosaur eggs, I think they are just cool. Super simple and easy to do with kiddos or friends!

Add one tablespoon white vinegar to 3 cups of water. Choose your food coloring, I got super bright neon colors.
Cracked Egg Shell Dyeing
Makes one dozen eggs
- 1 dozen eggs
- Food coloring
- bowls for each color
- white vinegar
- slotted spoons
- Start by hard boiling the eggs for 8-10 minutes. Then place eggs into a large pot of cool water to cool to the touch.
- In a separate bowl, add one tablespoon white vinegar to 3 cups of water. Choose your food coloring, I got super bright neon colors.
- Add 10-12 drops of food coloring to the vinegar and water and stir all around. Do this for each color you’d like in a separate bowl.
- Gently tap the side of the egg onto the counter. Causing the eggshells to be cracked but still on the egg.
- Dip the egg into the dyed water. The longer you let the eggs sit in the colored water, the stronger the color will be. Let eggs sit in the dye in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to 3 hours or over night for a super rich color.
- Remove eggs from water and gently peel shell off.
