5 tips to make sure you have the winning egg this Easter


It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for all year. The eggs are dyed. The bowls are full. Everyone’s positioned their grip perfectly. No one is safe, not even your 5-year-old cousin!

It’s happening.  

The battle is on. 

Families gather every year to celebrate Easter with their loved ones and when that time of the day comes, everyone prepares to bring out the eggs and start cracking. 

We are sharing 5 tips to make sure you have the winning egg this Easter Sunday. 

1. Make sure you have the right eggs

They say that strength comes from within, but in the case of eggs strength definitely lies on the outside, the shell. 

When picking your eggs to boil, free range eggs or farm eggs are a better pick because they have harder shells due to the better diet of the chickens. 

2. Boil them just right

Before you boil your free-range eggs (that’s right- you bought free range), make sure you let them come to room temperature. 

Depending on the type of dye you are using, you may have to dye your eggs as you boil them, or you may have to do it after they are boiled.

3. Dyeing your eggs

This step is one to make sure you take care with. Prepare your eggs by wiping them with a cloth dipped in vinegar to ensure a bright and vibrant colour. 

If you are using a packet dye, make sure to follow all the instructions to make sure you get the best colour possible.

4. Polish it up 

Once you have the colour you want, it’s absolutely imperative that you polish your eggs. So, grab a cloth, take a seat, and polish those eggs right up!

5. Going out with a bang! (Or a crack) 

There are a few tricks to getting your shell just that little bit harder to make sure that you have the winning egg. Some call it unethical or cheating but we’re here to win. 

Using clear nail polish or even decoupage glue can give you that extra layer of protection against whoever hits you and be sure to know that the longer you leave it to dry, you have more chance of winning. 

Happy Cracking!
