HOME ACTIVITY: NATURAL EGG DYEING
If you can’t make it to your local store to celebrate, try this fun family Easter tradition with a twist: dye your own eggs using natural colorants!
What you need:
- Cooking oil
- Natural colorants:
o Turmeric = yellow
o Onion skin = brown
o Birch leaves = light green
o Beetroot peel = brownish-red
o Grape juice = purple
o Red cabbage, whole leaves = purple
o Red cabbage, chopped = blue
o Beetroot juice = pinkish-red
Directions: Bring water, a couple of tablespoons of vinegar (will not give taste to the eggs), and a colorant to boil in a saucepan. Add the eggs. Play around with the boiling time and the amount colorant to get different shades of color. After dyeing, allow the eggs to cool down and dry. Rub with oil to make them shiny. Fun Tip: You can make beautiful patterns on the eggs. Before dying, wrap the egg in a piece of a nylon stocking with flowers or leaves tucked in. Or simply wrap rubber bands around the egg. You can also draw patterns and letters with a candle or a crayon.
