I have a friend.. and she had the wild crazy idea of getting our 9.5 kids together to color eggs.. Seems normal enough.. BUT NO.. we had to do it the OLD FASHION way..
I knew IT would be perfect, and so much fun. So after rescheduling (2) times we finally did it..TODAY! 🙂 good thing cause Easter is THIS weekend! She saw this article in a magazine
We armed our selfs with beets, purple cabbage, blue berries yellow onions, purple onions, turmeric (DIDNT EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT WAS), spinach & parsley, TONS of pots, white vinegar and 9 (YES NINE) kids!
Each color had to be mixed with water and vinegar.. We let boil for a long time (we started talking so who really knows ..maybe an hour??) We did drop a few non boiled yet eggs into the pots those were brighter colored in the end.
So we were able to dye beautiful eggs, and teach a science lesson AND have fun!? Without any yucky additives:)
levi loved the yellow/brown ones, judah the light green, and mine was the pretty tealish blue/green!
SOO pretty and very fun!
