Judging by the number of articles I have collected over the years offering suggestions on how to dye eggs for Easter this is something I have wanted to do for a long time and just never did it- so in keeping with my attempt to celebrate the day, I finally dyed eggs- before Easter!
As I noted before, when I have an idea often it requires the assistance of a family member to see it through with me. This time my daughter was my “helper” but actually is the one who kept track of how to do each type.
Sounds complicated – we were just dyeing eggs, right? How difficult does this have to be?
I mentioned I have been accumulating articles about egg dyeing over years. Who knew there were so many options?
We chose to dye 8 eggs. We could have dyed 12 but you never know when you may want to bake something so kept 4 available for that!
This is what we decided to do with the 8 eggs:
- Use natural dyes: turmeric, coffee, beets, and purple cabbage
- Use an unnatural dye: Grape kool-aid
- Use good old fashioned food dye with a twist (see photos below!)
