Decorating Easter Eggs without the Vinegar

Everyone loves to decorate Easter eggs, but who likes the house smelling like vinegar? Not me; so Kasi and I got together and tried out some new ways to decorate eggs without using vinegar….and they work!


Kool-Aid Dyes

2/3 cup of water

1 envelope Unsweetened Kool-Aid drink mix

Add water and drink mix to a cup and stir until mix is dissolved.

Dip your egg and let sit in water mixture until the color you desire. Lay out to dry.

Shaving Cream Eggs

1 can inexpensive shaving cream

Bright food colors


1. Wearing gloves; spay and spread shaving cream onto parchment or waxed paper.

2.  Drop food coloring into shaving cream and then take a toothpick and swirl colors together.

3. Roll hard-boiled egg into shaving cream and set aside to dry. When shaving cream has dried; rinse off under cold-running water and pat dry.

Inner Chef Note: I am sure my colors from the Shaving Cream dying would have been better if I would have let the shaving cream dry completely. I just couldn’t wait any longer!
