Did you know that Every year, Americans dye and decorate more than 180 million eggs during the Easter season, and many families use PAAS Egg Dyeing Kits and add Heinz Distilled White Vinegar to the mix to get the vivid colors they know and love. This year, in addition to decorating eggs at home, Heinz and PAAS Easter Egg Dyeing Kits teamed up to give your egg-decorating experience an extra special virtual twist with the new “Egg Decorator” iPad app
• A new, fun (and free!) “Egg Decorator” iPad app allows you to decorate ultra-vibrant Easter eggs with just the touch of your finger. The player chooses the color of the eggs, the decorations, and gets to go through the motions of pouring the vinegar and dropping in the color tablet – just like the real thing. So get ready to create a basket full of eggs.
I the mom loved creating glitter eggs and writing notes on each one. The best part was that I could erase and start over if I made a mistake – something I can not do when dyeing my hard boiled eggs.
• Best of all, the family fun and kids’ efforts goes to a great cause this year. For every Easter egg that’s “dyed” through the app and then shared, Heinz and PAAS will donate $1 to the Make-A-Wish foundation, up to $25,000.
5 Egg Decorating Tips:
When you and your kids take a break from your new addiction to the PAAS “Egg Decorator” iPad app why not grab one of the new PAAS decorating kits and create a memory with your family dying your Easter eggs with the below decorating tips and suggestions:
TIP #1 - This year, PAAS has eight new decorating kits to help dress up those baskets, including the Go Wild kit, with trendy animal print patterns, and 3D Eggsplosion that allow you to view your designs in 3D!
TIP #2 - To help make colors vivid and bright, add three tablespoons of Heinz® Distilled White Vinegar to the egg wash before dyeing the eggs.
TIP #3 - To help keep hard-cooked eggs from cracking, add two tablespoons of Heinz Distilled White Vinegar to the water before placing the eggs in the pot.
TIP #4 - Use a muffin (cupcake) tin for dyeing your Easter eggs – by placing one color into each muffin cup adding in your vinegar and water. this tip keeps all your dyeing in one container to simplify the clean up process.
TIP #5 - Place a hard boiled egg into a wire whisk and allow your children to dip it into the PAAS egg dye that you have made ahead in large size plastic cups. This makes for less mess.
