Here is a fun and sensory way to color eggs with your children/students for Easter/Spring. Forget messing with the store-bought kits—these eggs are the coolest. For best results, soak your eggs in vinegar for a minimum of 2 minutes so the color really clings to the egg shell. We prefer liquid food coloring to gel or powdered food coloring as it's easier to swirl in the cool whip. The best part is, this method uses all edible ingredients, so you can eat the eggs when you're done displaying them!
Prep time: 15 mins
Total time: 35 mins
Directions: Place eggs in a large bowl and cover with white vinegar. Soak for 2 minutes, drain and dry the eggs thoroughly. On a large plate or small baking sheet, spread your whipped topping in an even layer about 1/2” deep. Drop food color in single drops about an inch apart, in as many colors as you choose. Use a toothpick to swirl the colors to a marbled effect. Roll eggs in whipped cream and let sit 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from whipped cream (you may want to use latex gloves to avoid staining hands) and rinse until no whipped topping remains. Let dry completely on a paper towel and display.
