I was at the store last night getting a few last minute Easter basket items and I almost caved and bought those nasty egg dying tablets. This week (this month, this year) is so busy that I just haven’t taken the time to make our own egg dye this year. Then I looked at the ingredients list on the back of the egg dying kits! I should have snapped a picture so I could show you what was in these things but I was too disgusted to hold that box any longer and walked away! I think I’ll be making a trip to the natural food store tonight to get some natural food coloring.
If you have some time and want to experiment with making your own egg dye from fruits and vegetables it’s a lot of fun and the kids will have fun seeing what colors will appear. A few years ago we spent one entire evening doing just that. If you’d like the directions you may enjoy my post from 2009 called Easter with the Eco Chic and Son.
Here was one of my favorite pictures from when my son and I played around a few years ago. Love the blueberry dye!
