Easter Egg Natural Dye
By Ellen L. Published: 2013-03-30Here's something fun and natural for Easter. My little girl and I had made Easter Eggs for the first time last year when she was almost 3 years old. It was really fun and we did a post about our tiny Easter Eggs, but in my heart I was a bit horrified by the obnoxiously bright fakeness of the food coloring dyes that we used and that were eventually eaten into our systems along with the eggs. (No, we didn't eat the shells but the coloring kinda soaks in quite a bit, doesn't it?) So I was really interested when, this year, as I was mentally preparing for Easter Egg making, to see a blog article on using natural dyes to make really beautiful natural Easter Eggs. We tried it and as you can see the result is quite a looker and very very safe to eat for your little ones. It takes a bit more time and effort but we definitely thought the results were gorgeously worth it.
