Get back to basics with a great DIY for you and the kids over the Easter weekend! In Europe, coloured hard-boiled eggs have been used for hundreds of years to decorate homes, trees, gardens and given as gifts, and you can do this too by getting the kiddies involved in decorating coloured eggs, simply and naturally.
There are many different ways to colour your eggs (which you will first need to hard boil and let cool completely) naturally.
Check out what you already have in your pantry. Here are some of our ideas:
Turmeric - gives a beautiful yellow
Beetroot - a lovely deep pink
Cabbage - a sea blue colour depending on your cabbage type
Onion - a rustic orange
BEFORE YOU GET STARTED
Kids– don't forget to pop on your Marmalade Lion Long-Sleeved Smock to avoid any stains on your nice clothes!
Also, we recommend decorating these Easter Eggs on your ML Splat Mat, which doubles as a handy tablecloth. It will protect your table from veg dye stains and makes it super easy for parents to clean up! Win!!
Lastly, decorate with your choice of bits and pieces that you already have in your arts and crafts cupboard, then arrange simply in a bowl for a festive table centrepiece, or even use for your family's Easter Egg hunt!
