Natural Dyes for Easter Eggs

Recipes for making your own natural dyes for Easter eggs from EatingWell magazine, a great resource for moms.

 

An article running in Eating Well magazine explains why and how to use organic, homemade dyes.  It’s a great guide to check out.  I am realizing we didn’t leave the eggs in long enough to create a decent color – the article says to leave them in for 4 hours!

The best part of coloring eggs is adding decorations, such as glitter and feathers.  Another cool technique is to wrap elastic bands around the eggs before you soak them in dye – the designs are fun and fantastic!

Speaking of eggs, I have an article running on Ballooning Nest Eggs about a 14 year old girl in Colorado who started her own fresh egg business to help pay for her mom’s medical bills when her mom  was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.  Her name is Shelby Grebenc.  Her story is amazing and inspirational.   Shelby makes $15,000 a year selling fresh eggs!  You can find a link to the story here.  If you have a similar story to share, let us know and we’ll talk about it on MommaJam.

Happy Passover and Happy Easter!
