Supplies for Magic Mosaic Easter egg coloring.

First, make sure your hard boiled eggs are cool to the touch. To prep your eggs for the dye, gently tap your egg shell on a hard surface. You want the whole surface of the egg to be covered in lots of little cracks.

Crack your hard boiled eggs before coloring them to make Magic Mosaic Easter Eggs.

Next, gently peel a couple of the egg shell pieces away. Don’t peel the whole egg though! You only want to remove about 10% of the shell!

Peel small pieces of the egg shell away, but leave most of it intact.

Then, mix your food dye with water in a bowl or a cup and submerge your eggs.

Fully submerge your eggs in food coloring.

Place your eggs in the fridge for at least 4 hours to allow the dye to get into all the little cracks. If you want extra vibrant eggs, allow them to sit in the dye overnight.

Allow your Easter eggs to soak in the fridge over night.

Next, remove your eggs from the dye and peel off their shells. You will be left with a burst of colorful mosaic-like cracks all over the surface of your egg. Rinse your egg under some cool running water and then pat it dry with a paper towel.

Remove the remainder of the egg shell.

These eggs are perfect for a spring brunch, packed in a lunch box, or made into deviled eggs.

Magic Mosaic Eggs are a great Easter craft idea. They turn out beautiful, and your kids will love being able to eat the design.

The plain food coloring does not alter the taste of the eggs, only adds a pop of spring color!

    I’m not a huge fan of using bottled food colouring so I am grateful that you linked an article that teaches making natural colors. My girls will be so excited to try this, thanks!
