Easter eggs, naturally :)

shell-2152029_1280Easter is a celebration that focuses on food and fun! Dying eggs to create rainbow coloured eggs has been a long since tradition for many families. For these eggs we’re using all-natural food dyes!  That way you don’t have to worry about any harsh or toxic chemicals around your kids with this fun egg decorating craft.

 

Here is what you’ll need:

  • 1 dozen white eggs, hard boiled
  • 1 head of red cabbage, chopped
  • 4 red beets, chopped
  • 6 tablespoons ground turmeric
  • 9 cups of water
  • 12 tablespoons white vinegar

 

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Place red cabbage, beets, and turmeric into 3 separate pots, with 3 cups of water each
  2. Bring each pot to a boil and then simmer for about 30-minutes
  3. Strain each mixture, once cooled and pour back into respective pots
  4. Mix 4 tablespoons of white vinegar into each pot
  5. Place cooled hard-boiled eggs into each mixture, making sure they’re completely submerged – spoon out eggs once desired colour is achieved (from 1-minute to 30-minutes)
  6. Place them back into the egg tray to dry – once completely dried, you can decorate with paint

 

Happy egg decorating!
