Easter is in a few days. We are all busy coloring eggs and displaying them for Easter. What kind of dyes do you use? Artificial colors? Do you have any idea what’s inside these colors? Why don’t you use the natural way. Use natural products that can color your eggs and brighten your Easter. If you have a child with Celiac disease, you cannot use artificial colors. So better go for natural! I decided to try several options and see what the results are before I share them with you. I tried several ingredients and the best results were with turmeric, paprika, red cabbage, and onionskins. You can also option green by using spinach.

The instructions are simple. We will guide you step by step to color your eggs the natural way!
