The other day our family blogger Jenn gave us some ideas for dying Easter Eggs naturally. The egg-dying kits that you find in the store may be convenient, but they are full of chemicals and dyes that you don’t necessarily want your kids coming in contact with.

I’m a visual learner so I hunted down a great YouTube video that shows you how to dye Easter Eggs naturally. The eggs are colored with dyes made from foods, not chemicals. The video also gives tips on giving the eggs marbling, splotching, and tiger stripe designs.

Written instructions based on this video can be found at Curbly.com.
