  • Ziploc sandwich bags
  • Paper Towel
  • measuring cup
  • Drying rack made of foam board and pins


  • 12 Hard-boiled eggs
  • 6 cups rice
  • 15-20 drops of food coloring per color


  • Add 1 cup of rice to 6 Ziploc bags.
  • Add 15-20 drops of food coloring to each bag until the desired color is reached.
  • Seal the bag and shake until the rice is completely colored.
  • Add an egg to each rice bag.
  • Shake the bags to color the eggs.
  • Remove the egg and allow it to dry on a paper towel or a drying rack made from foam board and pins.


  • You can leave the colored rice in the cup and shake the eggs in the cup. We did find it easier to add the rice to the bag and shake that.
  • You may need to add more food coloring, depending on how bright you want the eggs.
  • You may need to add additional coloring after 1 or 2 eggs.
  • And be sure to color the egg immediately after adding the color, as the dye will dry quickly on the rice.
