These jewel-colored eggs are so beautiful we often have egg dying get-togethers with our friends and their kids to make them. And you don’t have to rely on commercial products to create them, either. Your refrigerator and pantry hold a cornucopia of fruits, vegetables, and spices that can be turned into a rainbow of distinctive dyes.
Vibrant Easter Eggs, dyed naturally. Thought this would also be a good teaching tool for history...how textiles were dyed long ago. Maybe even try to dye different materials like cotton fabric, yarn, etc with the the natural dyes (science).
Croatian (Slavonian) Easter eggs - this is how we always colored our eggs - interesting leaves in the stocking and then cooked in onion peels, dandelion flowers or beet skins. Afterwards we would make them shiny by rubbing them in bacon.
Easter Egg - I love these...maybe even enough to pay for the pattern...either way, completely inspirational!
