With Easter arriving, instead of buying dye for your eggs, use a package of Freshie or Kool-Aid powdered drink mix.
Mix the whole package with just a little water - the more water you use, the lighter the color will be.
Place the hard boiled eggs in the mixed liquid, leave and play a game. Go back and lift the egg out with a wire egg holder. Put them on an old rag to dry.
Repeat for darker shades.
To decorate them further, before putting the eggs into the mixture, let the children draw on the eggs with crayons or put stickers on them.
