Easter Egg Dye from Your Kitchen

Holiday activity

It’s Easter, and you forget to get those little egg dye tablets. You rush out to any store that’s still open on a holiday only to find they’re all sold out. Now what? Forget dying Easter eggs? No way! As long as you have a few hard-boiled eggs on hand, you can scavenge your kitchen for everyday items that add a rainbow of hues.

What kitchen items can you use to color Easter eggs?

Candy

Soak colorful hard candies or jelly beans in water. As the candy melts, the color releases and leaves behind an egg dye bath.

Beets

Whether you have the fresh or canned kind, you can use the root veggie to get a purplish-red color for your eggs. Soak the eggs in a cup of the juice from the canned kind or boil a few fresh ones in a pot of water. Let the water cool, and then use it for the eggs.

Onions

Boil red and yellow onion skins with water. When the mix reaches a boil, turn the heat down and simmer the skins for about 30 minutes. Strain the leftover skins out and soak the eggs in the cooled colorful liquid.

Food coloring

This is an obvious choice and a total no-brainer. If you’re stuck with only a few colors, combine them to make a rainbow of hues.
