How to dye Easter Eggs with Cool Whip

Happy Easter, friends!

Last year we skipped coloring eggs (pregnant Mama + 1 year old = no thank you!) however this year I was excited to see how Remington liked it! Considering she likes coloring plus getting her hands dirty, I figured she would enjoy this activity and boy was I right!

We did try a "no spill" basic egg dye kit as well as color tablets in coffee mugs/vinegar/water (hello broken eggs) but I'd have to say the cool whip dye was definitely the most fun and toddler friendly! (And edible!)

All you need is an 8oz package of cool whip, a large dish/cake pan, and some food coloring of your choice (I used neon pink, purple, blue, and green).

Spread the cool whip along the bottom of the dish, place drops of each color of food coloring throughout the cool whip (do not place on top of each other), and then slice/swirl with a butter knife.

The concept is to roll the egg from one end of the dish to the other, but I just let Remington do whatever she wanted. She really loved it! Her hands will be stained for a couple days, but it will eventually wear off.

Let them sit on a paper towel for a half hour before wiping them off. Don't rinse them under water, as the color will come off.

Does your family color eggs? If so, what is your favorite way to dye them?!
