I look at the site under resources, but we do not have a lot of the ingredients for those egg dies, so i found some other recipes for egg die. The yellow worked. I used orange peel and some spice that starts with a T. for the red I used cranberries, i boiled it too much, and all the water went away, so i added water after, and it did not turn out so well. The red is a pale orange/brown. The blue was made using blueberries. It looks kind of cool, like a gray/purple/blue/green. This was really fun and cool to do. I think That i will try this again next year and try to get better results
Make naturally dyed Easter Eggs!
Each year, candy manufacturers produce more than 90 million chocolate Easter bunnies for Easter. Meanwhile, research shows that solid chocolate bunnies are the most popular - followed by hollow chocolate bunnies, and marshmallow chocolate bunnies. Studies also prove that 76% of Americans will eat the ears on chocolate bunnies first.
Why, my darlings, would you use harsh dyes and chemicals to dye your Easter Eggs, when you can do it with crunchy, delicious veggies? Seems like something any old (Easter) bunny could try!
- Check out the nifty blog in Resources which has all the egg-dyeing instructions.
- For extra eco-righteousness, see if you can do this with local, organic eggs and vegetables.
- Dye away! Place your eggs in a beautiful arrangement, take photos, and share with us how it goes!
Don't celebrate Easter?
Oh, give it a shot anyway! This could be fun craft project for kids of any age!
