Dye Easter Eggs with Cool Whip and Food Coloring

Some of our favorite holiday traditions can be harder with little ones. I always search for different ways to modify something to be a little more little kid friendly. Finding out that cool whip plus food coloring is an easy way to “dye” Easter eggs was a great find and the result is beautiful.

I searched Pinterest and came across this idea of using Cool Whip and Food Coloring to dye my Eater Eggs thanks to Tot School.

Follow the directions Step by Step. You will hard boil your eggs and let them cool completely and then coat the eggs with vinegar before you dye them with the cool whip and food coloring.


I had my girls swirl the food coloring into the cool whip with a straw inside of the container. Well, my four-year old did most of the work.

We rolled each egg into the colored cool whip

We then put them into the egg carton they came in and placed them in the fridge for 12 hours.


When you take them out of the fridge 12 hours later use a dry paper towel to take off all the whip cream. This takes some time and is messy. I recommend the adult taking over this job. Let them stand and you will be happy with the beautiful marble colors left behind.

You are using food coloring so I have to warn you that food coloring does dye your hands. My daughter loves the color purple but I was not too excited about her hands being purple and green for about a day. You can put gloves on the kids but you know they are going to want to feel the cool whip and enjoy eating it off their hands.
