We just had to pass along this all natural Easter egg concept from this month’s Ladies’ house Journal (what? Heidi Klum was on the cover… she sucked me in). as well as I’m pleased that she did since they compiled a bit listing of foods & spices that can be utilized to produce all natural Easter egg dyes! obviously all you have to do is add two cups of water as well as two tablespoons of white vinegar to the components below for some eco-friendly egg decorating:
For orange dye, utilize 2 tablespoons of paprika.
Feeling blue? try 1 as well as a half cups of blueberries.
For pink, utilize 1 cup of chopped fresh beets.
Keen for green? utilize 1 cup of blueberries & 2 tablespoons of turmeric.
To make the dye bath, bring the components to a boil as well as eliminate ’em from heat. great as well as strain the liquid into a medium bowl as well as submerge 4 to 6 hard-cooked eggs into the dye for as much as 30 minutes, depending upon exactly how deep you want the color to be (soft subtle tones look wonderful too!). eliminate the eggs from the dye as well as location them on a cooling rack to dry as well as drain. then just pop them in the fridge up until they’re prepared to use.
We like this idea! as well as envision exactly how fun it’ll be for kiddos (and grown-ups alike) to play with veggies, fruits as well as spices in addition to eggs. It’s a smorgasbord of Easter fun as well as it’s great clean fun at that (no artificial components required). happy (yes I did just withstand the desire to compose “hoppy”) Easter everyone!

Psst – We tried dying eggs two years later for Clara’s Easter basket! You can see exactly how it worked out here!
