Easter eggs with natural colorings

Milly decided to be creative this year and color Easter eggs with all natural ingredients. She found this website for a guide.

Can you guess what item made what coloring?

They turned out pretty good for no artificial egg coloring.

  1. The process included boiling ingredients in 2 cups of water.
  2. Straining the contents into cups.
  3. Adding 2 tablespoons of vinegar
  4. Dip eggs into each concoction

Started with white eggs. I’ve heard brown eggs give a deep rich color.

Child labor at it’s finest.

Spinach looked nice and was a good idea but it didn’t work and the spinach tasted gross afterwards.

Extract juice from onion skins for orange and blueberries for purple/blue.

Beet juice made the bright pink. If we would have had red cabbage we could have made blue.

More eggs. These eggs were all experimenting with mixing colors.

Nice non toxic way to color eggs. Happy Easter.
