You don’t need to run to the store for an egg coloring kit once you learn how to dye Easter eggs naturally. You can dye your Easter eggs using things that you probably already have around the house. The colors won’t be the same neon colors that a store purchased Easter egg kit makes but the colors are still fun and unique. Plus, your kids will learn how to create something themselves from scratch which is an important lesson.
You can either boil the eggs in the food dye or you can do them separately. It is faster to boil the eggs in the food dye but you will need to do multiple pans if you want to have a variety of different colors. Since that is the way to get the most vibrant colors, that is what I’ll show you how to do.
Here are the natural dyes you can use for different colors. Remember that the more dye you use, the darker and more vibrant the colors of your Easter eggs will be.
Have you ever tried to dye Easter eggs naturally or do you generally use the kits from the store? Which colors do you think you would most enjoy creating?
