Easter Eggs



I tried the natural easter egg dyes this year via Martha Stewart. I kind of just did it myself, since L is still small, and I wanted to let the sit overnight. But John and L both enjoyed peeking in on the process. The colors were so rich, and the process was fun and easy. I tried red cabbage for blue, and turmeric for yellow. I put mine in jars because I didn't do a lot of eggs, and so it was a little more efficient to cover the eggs this way than in a wide bowl. Also, I mixed a little of the two dyes together to try a green - which turned out great, even though the dye looked pretty muddy.

Very cool! I love how deep the colors turned out. You always do the neatest stuff.

I just saw on another site that a traditional, Russian family dyed their eggs red with onion skins- worth a try
