Believe it or not, we're already entering April. Sure, the crazy weather has put a damper on the start of the season, but the bright light is Easter. To kick things off, and make it a fun month, make these naturally dyed eggs with your family! You'll rest assured no artificial dyes or funky chemicals will touch your kids skin, and kids will have a blast making them. 

There are a few key things you'll need for all the egg colors, so do the following: 

  • Have 3 medium glass bowls, cleaned.
  • Vinegar 
  • Water
  • White Eggs 
  • A sauce pot 
  • Strainer

Once you have everything gathered, you can start to make your Easter approved dyes! Here's the recipe for the most popular colors a box would give. Oh, and step things up with some homemade gummy bears to snack on while coloring the eggs!

 

Pink

To achieve a pretty, pastel pink, you'll need to boil 2 cups of water with 1 cup of shredded beets. Once boiling is reached, you'll want to keep it on low heat until a deep, pink color is achieved. From here, strain into a bowl, and add 1 Tbsp. Vinegar. Place your eggs, and let color develop!

 

Blue

To achieve a bright blue, you'll need to boil 2 cups shredded purple cabbage and cover in water, about 1 inch above. Once boiling is reached, you'll want to keep it on low heat until the blue appears. From here, strain into a bowl, and add 1 Tbsp. Vinegar. Place your eggs, and let color develop!

 

Yellow

Finally, time for that beloved sunshine yellow! For this one, add two cups of water to 1 cup of Turmeric, boil. Remove from heat after a very yellow color is reached, and strain into a glass bowl. Add in 2 Tbsp. vinegar, and place eggs until yellow color develops.
