I found this on Lori Tanner's blog and thought it was too good not to share!
I haven't tried this, but I don't see why it wouldn't work.
Here it is:
"I love my Family Fun magazine. This months issue had a great idea in it to help little ones color their Easter eggs without having to use a spoon or those little wire dipping tools that comes with the kit. Use a wire whisk instead! Just slip the egg between the wires, and your egg is nestled in a safe basket of wires! Less chance of breaking the egg as you dip it into your cup!"
