Our Easter Trip

We had an awesome Easter. Both of my grandsons got to color eggs. We used crushed blue berries, crushed rasberries and grape juice for the boys to dip their eggs in.
Since it was grape juice Little Bug had to do a taste test.
I wanted a third color so I boiled a few eggs in onion skins.
The blue berries did the best followed by the onion skins. The grape juice eggs color seemed to rub off a little.
Little Bug loves finding eggs.
Pooh Bear had a blast finding eggs.

  7. I have thought of using natural things to make dyes for all sorts of things, including eggs! Thank you so much for the great ideas. I kind of knew about grape juice but I'm glad you told us that it rubs off easily. I would never have thought of the onion skins though! Great post, thanks again!!

  20. I liked your pictures of the egg dyeing with food items; it was helpful to see how well they worked on the eggs. I also look forward to trying your peanutbutter cooky brownies recipe.

  22. They look like they had so much fun and I know you did too. I like the idea of using natural things to dye the eggs. I remember we have used beet juice before but that is the only thing I can think of. Memories captured in pictures last forever :)
