Spring and Natural Easter Eggs

We are getting glimpses of spring in the mountains…and whenever I sense spring I get very excited to clear clutter and clean! But more on that next week…

At the moment, my attention is on Easter. I came across recipes for natural Easter egg dyes in the March/April issue of Natural Home and Garden Magazine. The kids and I really had fun experimenting with different vegetables, fruits, and herbs and loved the surprise of seeing what different colors they produced.

If you can’t find Natural Home and Garden (I highly recommend subscribing), I found similar recipes online via Dreamy Whites at Better Homes and Gardens.

Our ingredients: beets, red cabbage, coffee grinds, and turmeric.

Boiling…

Our dyes… ready for the eggs!

The dyes do stain, so protect your table!

Next time I will dry my eggs on a cookie cooling rack. The egg carton, although convenient, created a puddle on the bottom that gave the eggs an uneven finish.

Our eggs!

Pretty much everything ends up in my favorite bowl.

An Easter basket that I filled with dye-free, GMO- free and organic sweets. For more information on the importance of dye-free treats and where you can find them, check out our blog: Celebrating with Natural Sweets.

Happy Spring!
