What you need:
Eggs - white ones are easier to dye brighter colours
Vinegar - 1 tablespoon white vinegar per dye colour works best
Containers - big enough for 1 cup of dye for each colour (mason jars with lids are ideal)
Food colour or food scraps: purple cabbage, yellow onion, red beets (left over pickled beet juice works too!) red onion, tumeric, coffee, avocado peel, blueberries, grape juice are other options too.
Newspaper, placemat or something else to protect your table from dye.
Space in a fridge: dyes from food scraps need more time than chemical dyes, so put them in the fridge overnight for a brighter colour
Paper towel can be helpful to put the dyed eggs on / clean your spoons between dyes etc.
Bonus version: Flower designs require flowers / plants and a stocking / nylon you can cut up to tie the flowers on to the eggs.
Ask a parent or guardian or older brother, sister, cousin, auntie or uncle, … to see if you have these ingredients and if they will help you use the stove. If you want to do this on your own or with younger siblings, its best to use food colour as it does not need to be heated.
Do not go anywhere or use the stove without permission from your parent or guardian.
