Half a Dozen At-Home Easter Activity Tips from The Incredible Egg:
Use Fruits and Veggies from Your Fridge to Decorate your Eggs
No food coloring? No worries! Create naturally dyed Easter eggs using ingredients you may already have in your fridge, such as beets, orange peels, spinach leaves or grape juice. Adding vinegar to natural dyes helps deepen the color, as does increased time in the dye.
Plus, eggs decorated with food-safe materials that aren’t left outside the fridge for more than two hours can be safely eaten. Find step-by-step instructions here.
