Your best bet for food coloring is to check Bangsan Market in Seoul. It's close to the Dongdaemun area but I'm pretty sure the closest station is Jongno 5-ga. I haven't actually been there myself but I know through a friend that there's a lot of baking stuff there. For Easter eggs, check Namdaemun market. They usually have the best selection of seasonal stuff. I'm planning a trip to Namdaemun next week, if I see anything I'll let you know!

What might be more difficult than finding dye is finding white eggs.  At least where I live all the eggs are brown and those are difficult to dye.

I did an Easter lesson at my winter camp and I just gave them a drawing of an egg with a design on it and let them colour it in.  This was for elementary school grade 4 though so they were happy with that.

I found white eggs at my local grocery store, but they were much more expensive than the brown ones.  I had my students paint them since I couldn't find any dye and that worked out fairly well. (And since the paint is darker and thicker, brown eggs can be used.)

Anybody know where we can buy chocolate Easter eggs?  I missed the order being placed in South Africa to send some here and I am dying for some good old Beacon marshmallow eggs, you know the el cheapo ones you can buy in Checkers and Pick 'n Pay in S A.

I would kill for some hot cross buns too !!!    :) :) :)

you should be able to find food coloring in the baking section at home plus.

The HomePlus near me stopped carrying food colouring so I ordered it online.

Also, you can dye Easter eggs without food colouring by using natural dyes from cabbage and onion, etc. I dyed eggs with my 6th grade students today and it went really well. They all brought in brown eggs, but I was able to find white ones at my local E-Mart.

I made a very quick and basic presentation about dying eggs on Prezi.
