My All-Natural Easter Egg Dye Instructions

Our Easter tradition.

Dyeing Easter eggs is one of my favorite traditions to do with my family. The last several years, we have been using fruits and vegetables to make all-natural dyes. Some of the colors show up quickly, while others take longer for the pigment to appear (so we leave them in overnight). The kids love to experiment and decorate their eggs in their own unique way. Scroll down to find out how to make them yourself.
