life and style and co | Easter Colors

Ever since I got my first child, I started to be more aware of the “green” natural life, from buying bio food ingredients, to “trying” as much as possible to save energy at the house and to maintain a healthy lifestyle to my family.

With Easter coming up in 2 days, we definitely had to do one of the Easter traditions at this time of the year, and now with even more excitement since my daughter will help me out decorating the house 🙂

Dyeing the Easter eggs is always a fun thing to do for grown ups as much as for the kids, but I recall we never ate the eggs after dyeing them because of  the artificial colorant. So I decided this year I will dye the eggs naturally, using homey ingredients which, I guarantee, added all the fun to the lovely experience with JJ.

Before you dye the egg, wipe the eggshell with vinegar so it can absorb the color.

Here is what I used:

Beets for a pink egg

Cranberry juice (1 cup) for a lighter pink

Turmeric powder for a beautiful yellow color

Sweet paprika for orange

Red cabbage for blueish shades

Mix the cabbage and turmeric water for  green color

You should first boil the eggs.

As for the colors, you can boil the beets/juice/turmeric/paprika/cabbage each alone with 500 ml water, then add 4 tablespoons of vinegar. Once the eggs are ready, soak them in the desired color, few minutes for a light shade, few hours (or overnight) for darker color or till the desired shade.

Our Easter eggs are ready for the egg hunt tomorrow and the egg tapping on Sunday 🙂

Happy Easter everyone!
