  • 6-8 Plastic zipper sandwich bags
  • Measuring cup
  • Tray or plate lined with paper towel
  • Optional: gloves


  • Boiled eggs
  • Food coloring primary and/or neon colors
  • Bag of White rice


  • Open each bag. Fill each bag with ½ cup of rice.
  • Add 10-12 drops of food coloring into each bag. Choose one color per bag, or mix the colors up to see what colors you can create.
  • Add one egg to each bag. Close bag well.
  • Gently roll the egg around in the rice using both hands and cover the egg until colored completely. If you need to add more food coloring to the bag, open the bag, add desired amount of drops in. More drops = brighter color.
  • Remove each egg from bag and set on tray to dry.
  • Repeat this process for all remaining eggs. You can reuse used rice to color the eggs. Just add more drops of food coloring into the bag to color more eggs.
  • Tip: Save the colored rice for sensory play!
