Your kids are ready to dye Easter eggs. But there’s a problem. You don’t have the colorful dye tablets you use every year—and your don’t want to go out to a store to buy them. What can you do now?

Even though the ready-made tablets and other egg dyes are easy options, you can still color eggs without them. Check out the everyday items that you can use as alternative Easter egg coloring and how to use them.

What Can You Use to Color Easter Eggs?

There are a variety of food, beverage and everyday items to try as Easter egg dye. Some of the most popular picks include: purple cabbage (purple), beets (red or pink), turmeric (yellow), yellow onions (yellow) or raspberries (red or pink).

How Do You Make Your Own Easter Egg Color?

Make one batch for each ingredient/color. Combine one cup of water and your ingredient of choice. The amount of water and ingredient you use varies depending on how bright you want to make the dye. Bring the water to a boil and let it simmer until the color leaches out. You’ll see the water turning a purple, red, yellow or other color. Remove the ingredient after the water cools completely and use the dye to color your hard boiled eggs.
