Easter Eggs – The Natural Way

We kicked off our Easter festivities with some egg dying yesterday afternoon.  We were able to use items found in our home for dying; beets for pink, frozen blackberry’s for purple, and some expired mother’s milk tea with curry powder for yellow.  I found a lot of resources for natural egg dying and they all pretty much consist of two cups dye matter, two to four cups water, and two tablespoons of white vinegar. After boiling the eggs and boiling the dye, the big girl colored on the eggs with wax crayons and we experimented on two with scotch tape. Our girl had so much fun preparing the dye, dying the eggs, and admiring her finished product.  We can’t wait for the Easter Bunny to visit our house tomorrow!
