Natural Dyes For Easter Eggs
This Easter season, why not enjoy egg coloring that is natural and chemical free? Not only is it great for the environment, but it is less of a problem if your dogs get a hold of it or if your little kids put the eggs int heir mouths. Creating a home that is chemical free is a great way to live healthier and simpler lives. Take a peek below how you can enjoy a chemical free Easter by using these natural dyes for Easter Eggs. It is so simple to use fruits and vegetables that you already have in your house instead of trying to find food coloring that is bad for your children and really difficult to get the stain off of little hands and household items. This way the colors might stain but they will eventually wash away with some soap and water. If there are going to be little hands helping to dye your eggs be sure to cover the work space with newspaper and if you have it a giant plastic bag to catch any spills that might occur. Tell everyone to go slowly and carefully and you will have less mess to clean up later.
