I've never had a good result coloring eggs--in my youth, we used those kits with the wire holders and the dye tablets and the colors were always disappointing. I finally came to the conclusion that the brightly colored eggs in magazines and photos were somehow faked.
But this year, Rain Dragon wanted to color "really bright" eggs, so I decided to follow internet directions as close to the letter as possible. Cool the eggs in ice water! 20 drops of food coloring! Well, I am happy to report that, for once, the internet told the truth. Our eggs were the most colorful I've ever made them:

And she and her bunny dashed to find them:
and had a happy Easter!
