If there is time to decorate...
If you'd like to take part in the tradition, here are some simple egg dyes that can be made with pantry ingredients you may already have on hand:
Yellow/Gold: Turmeric / Cumin Orange: Paprika Blue: Red Cabbage Brown: Spent Coffee Grounds
Red: Red Onion Skins / Beet Skins Lavender: Hibiscus Tea Green: Spinach
Directions: Add ingredients to boiling water ,adding more herb/spice/tea to get desired color. Strain, if necessary, and add 1 tablespoon of vinegar to the dye. Allow time for liquid to cool before dying
Notes: - Eggs will be end up being a lighter color than the actual liquid in the pot - The longer you soak the eggs in the dye, the darker the color
- Play around with stencils using crayon, flowers, lace, etc.
