Naturally dyed Easter eggs can be gorgeous—look at the image above if you don't believe me.

 

Artist and blogger Stephanie Congdon Barnes used red cabbage and turmeric to get these bold blues and yellows. Here's how to dye Easter eggs naturally the way Stephanie did.

CafeMom StarMommy77 provides an awesome link in the Green Organic Natural Simple Living group to a list of other natural dyes for Easter eggs, which includes beets, onion skin, cabbage solutions, coffee, and more.

Here's small step toward an Eco Easter. Give it a try.

We have not colored eggs in a couple of years, the chickens did it for us :)  but we lost all of our hens over the winter so we are starting all over again so that means no farm eggs for now.  I didn't want to do just make plain everyday eggs and this just sounded like fun.  Science class gets tossed in to boot!  Great for all.

Mothering Magazine also has great ideas on how to make naturally dyed eggs too! Fun!
