Can I Eat My Decorated Easter Eggs?
Yes! If you are using Food Grade Markers (food coloring markers) and handling your eggs with food safety rules (like keeping them at a safe temperature and returning them to the fridge)… then you can eat your eggs. You know how your eggs have been handled so you decide. I know sometimes our eggs are left out too long so we don’t eat those ones… no Easter tummy aches for us.
Some egg decorating methods do not use food-safe dyes or supplies, so make sure not to eat those eggs and inform children and keep an eye on them.
What are Food Color Markers
So I am in love with edible markers. Essentially they are food coloring in marker form and they make crafting with food so fun while keeping the food edible (which is the point of food right…lol).
If you don’t have food coloring markers and don’t have time to buy any before Eater you can try this Easter Egg Tie Dyeing Method that uses regular markers and makes eggs that are just as colorful but non-edible.

Coffee Filter Tie Dye Eggs
I’m so glad you like our Tie Dye Eggs! Please click PIN to SAVE it for later…and “thank you” for sharing it with others so we can keep creating new ideas for visitors like you!
Step 1: Decorate the Coffee Filter
Color the coffee filter with FOOD COLORING MARKERS (only). We drew patterns and designs. Once the vinegar touches the coffee filter the colors all run together making the tie-dye effect.
Step 2: Wrap the Egg and Dip
Place an egg in the center of your coffee filter, wrap it around the egg, and twist the top.
Dip the egg in the vinegar and set the egg to the side to dry.
Step 3: Unwrap the Egg and Enjoy
Once your egg is dry it’s time to unwrap it. This is the best part… how cool does your tie dye egg look!!!
I hope you have a Happy Easter! I know the Easter bunny will love seeing these eggs in your Easter basket this year!
