Naturally Dyed Eggs

I always looked forward to Easter. Of course, when I was young my excitement had nothing to do with Jesus but everything to do with egg coloring and hunting for chocolate. Mum would bring home an egg dyeing kit and I knew it was nearly Easter Morning. When I have children, that tradition will be changed slightly. I’ll use natural dyes like coffee, cranberries, blueberries and orange peels. Because it wasn’t so much the dye kit coming home, it was the fun I had with my brother and my mother around the kitchen table. Thanks to mipmup for the link.

  1. Can you believe I’ve never dyed eggs? I’ll have to check out that link for next year 🙂

  2. Why are the eggs given out? What is the tradition of colouring eggs on Easter? Did Jesus and his disciples do the same ?
