Why not use brightly colored shredded paper
from your very own office shredder? Even newspaper would work.
Dyeing your Eggs
Did you know that there are natural ways
Check out these creative ways to dye your eggs this year:
Yellow-Steep two or three green tea or chamomile tea bags in a cup of hot water and then soak eggs in tea
Red- Beets or raspberries
Pink-Use cranberry or red grape juice thinned with water
Light Blue-Add purple grape juice and canned blueberries to the water
Lavender-Steep red zinger tea bags in hot water.
Put old spices to good use with these ideas and measure about one tablespoon per cup of water.
Orange-Cooking paprika in hot water produces an orange color
And they turn out just as pretty!
Why not buy wooden eggs to decorate with paint or markers. So green, plus they make excellent keepsakes of your child’s artwork.
