I am imagining that the McCormick’s website must get more traffic this time of year than any other, considering that it’s pretty much homebase for anyone wanting to know just how to dye Easter eggs with food coloring, and just which exact combo of those teeny little drops will yield the perfect hues.

While we’ve shared some cool natural ways to dye your Easter eggs, I also understand that when it comes to kids, sometimes a pale kinda-yellow-brown isn’t going to cut it when what they really want is bright neon orange. And that a kid like mine who loves turquoise (this year) will probably not settle for any other color of blue.

If you know what I’m talking about, be sure to check out the McCormick’s Easter Egg dyeing guide.

How to dye Easter eggs with food color: McCormick's Pantone color dyeing guide

You’ll find the site is filled with tons of tips, tricks, techniques from the classic color-wash Easter eggs to fun marbleized Easter eggs, and polka-dot Easter eggs that are adorable. Plus I love the handy infographics that you can just tap to save on your phone or tablet’s camera roll for quick reference on Easter Sunday.

I especially like their suggestions for more modern Easter egg color combos based on the hot Pantone colors, because heaven forbid your Scuba Blue eggs don’t match your Scuba Blue nails.

Or wait — if you do have Scuba Blue nails, maybe this is a great way to be sure you can dye Easter eggs with the kids without worrying about your manicure. You know. That, or rubber gloves.
