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