For those that celebrate Easter, the holiday can bring loads of unhealthy (yet often delicious) treats, overloads of sugar, and dipping hard-boiled eggs in synthetic dyes to make those bright colorful eggs.  I always enjoy this project with my kids however, as much as I love DIY, it’s an awful lot of work for a busy mom and then the actual time spent with the kids goes by in an instant.  However, if you are determined to clean up your egg dyeing this year you have a plethora of options thanks to Pinterest (do you follow me there yet?).

Searching for “natural egg dye” will bring up an enormous amount of beautifully colored eggs.

Another great set of dyes and ideas from Green Child Magazine.

If you’re anything like me, you might go the way of an already made kit of natural dyes – and for that, there are many options! Last year I used the newly reformulated Eco-Kids Egg Coloring Kit.  Our eggs came out really pretty and bright.

But what about the candy?

I know I know, you still have to have a little fun with candy right?  I hit up the Natural Candy Store every year for chocolate and jelly beans!

 

What are your favorite Easter ideas for keeping it natural?
