Natural Easter Egg Dyes by Shannon McRae

Ever wonder about picking out healthy, free range chicken eggs, boiling them for your kids or family at Easter time, and then putting artificial chemical dyes on them?

Ever wonder when you peel that egg the day after Easter and find it's stained with blue or green chemicals?

Shannon McRae posts in KIWI Magazine "Natural Ways to Dye Easter Eggs."

You'll need a troupe of children just before Easter morning and some turmeric or curry powder, blueberries, and beets for yellow, blue and pink Easter eggs. They can put stickies on the eggs before dying them and then take the stickies off to reveal patterns.

Another trick we used to do as children is writing on the eggs with white or colored wax crayons. The wax won't allow the dye to penetrate and you'll be left with cool designs.

The article goes on to say:

"Shannon McRae is a work-at-home mom of three young children whose days are spent wiping mouths, playing Candyland, planning dinners and stealing time in between at the computer for her freelance writing. She's a stickler for healthy eating, with a slight exception for Oreos. She lives in Alabama with her precious children, loving husband and 13-year-old Australian Shepherd named Ricky Martin."
