OkoNorm Egg Dye Kit
Transform eggs into a colourful, edible display with this natural colour dye kit. This set contains five colours - red, yellow, green, orange and pink. Add a colour sachet to water to make enough dye to dye around 5-7 eggs. Using for additional eggs will result in a less intense colour. Due to naturally occurring pigments in the egg shell, eggs may come out in different shades. Once dyed, you will be able to eat these colourful hard-boiled eggs. Dyeing eggs is an ideal craft session for Easter but can be enjoyed year round by young children.
Instructions for use:
- Pour 750ml of cold water into a stainless steel saucepan - don't use enamel pans as they will be stained by the dye. Add one dye sachet.
- Place 5-7 eggs in the saucepan, ensuring they are covered by the water.
- Bring to the boil, stir the dye and allow to boil for 7-10 minutes. Remove the eggs from the pan and set the colour by running under cold water.
- If the dye solution is reused, the effect won't be as strong.
These egg dyes are made with curcumin, chlorophyllin and cochineal natural food colours and rock salt. It is gluten-free.
