We can’t believe it’s almost Easter! With all of the cold weather that we’ve been having on the East Coast, we are so excited for the warmer weather. One way to celebrate is to decorate Easter eggs in all sorts of fun colors. While we love our kids to participate in this interactive activity, we don’t dig the yucky dyes that are contained in most packaged options. An option we’re exploring this year is to naturally dye our Easter eggs using elements that are naturally found in fruits, vegetables, and spices. Check out a few recipes we found online, plus a natural DIY kit below:

4. Mommy Potamus breaks down how to dye Easter eggs using every ingredients like turmeric, hibiscus, and beets. This super detailed post breaks down each step by color that is sure to help you to create the perfect hue per egg.
5. Another option that’s eco-friendly and a little more user-friendly are eco-eggs from eco-kids. Made with natural and organic fruit, plant and vegetable extracts from annatto seed, curcumin, purple sweet potato and red cabbage, we love that they make it easy to safely color eggs at home via an organized kit. The kit also includes items where you can grow grass to display your finished eggs and eco-crayons for decorating the eggs.
