Here are some tips for Easter Eggs to ensure that you handle them properly.
Easter eggs can be dyed with commercial kits, or at home with food coloring and a vinegar solution. You can use approximately ½ cup of water with several drops of food coloring, mixed with 1 tablespoon of vinegar. The amount of food coloring needed isn’t exact; just add more until you get the desired shade. Dip your hard-boiled eggs in the color and then remove the excess water by patting dry with a towel.
Since children will be handling eggs, it’s important to frequently wash your hands to reduce the amount of germs. If eggs are cracked or broken, don’t use them as Easter eggs. These eggs have a higher risk of containing Salmonella bacteria. Once eggs are dyed and dried, they are frequently used for Easter egg hunts and other activities. The general rule is to eat eggs only if they have been at room temperature less than two hours. Any thing over a two-hour period at room temperature is deemed unsafe. Make certain not to eat dyed eggs that have been used for decorative purposes and left out longer than two-hours. These eggs should be thrown away. Easter eggs that have been placed in the refrigerator will last for one week.
A great activity that you can make with your children is to decorate your Easter eggs using a crayon. The waxy coating of the crayon will make your eggs resistant to the dye, only in the areas where the crayon is located. You can write words, names, or draw pictures before placing the eggs in the food coloring dye.
