Step 1) Carefully place eggs in a large skillet and cover with water. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove eggs from water and immediately place in refrigerator to cool.

Step 3) For each desired color, combine 4 drops of food coloring and 1 teaspoon vinegar. Medicine cups work well for this.

Step 4) Using a small art brush, paint each color within the boundaries of the rubber bands. Use color sparingly (don’t soak the WIN_20150330_110857brush) for best results.

Step 5) Allow eggs to dry before removing rubber bands.
