We don't dye eggs for easter - we re-use plastic eggs year after year, and fill them with jelly beans and gummy bears. We don't buy chocolate bunnies because my kids don't really like them. They like chocolate - milk chocolate.
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!
