Simple All Natural Easter Egg Dyes

Easter is the one time of year that ordinary eggs get to be extraordinary eggs!  With shades of pink, blue, yellow, orange and purple, the possibilities are as wide open as your child’s imagination when it comes to decorating Easter eggs.  Throw out the box of artificial food coloring you have stored in your pantry, because we’re going to teach you how to make all natural egg dye the good, simple, old fashioned way!

Natural egg dye is very easy to make using berries, vegetables and spices you probably already have in your home.  When you’re finished, you can even toss all of your leftover dye in your compost pile!
