Natural Egg Dye Kits

Lucca-Natural-Egg-Dye


We're a few weeks away from Easter and you know what that means -- egg dyeing time! Celebrate spring with earth-friendly egg dyes made from fruits, herbs, and veggies  (including beets, turmeric and spinach). The kiddos get a kick out of the eggs changing color and we love the eco-friendly and non-toxic dyes. Each kit comes with 4 packages of dye and can make 5-6 different color combinations. We hope you try this safe and natural egg dye kit for your upcoming egg decorating party!

No vinegar is needed, just pour the dye powder into hot water.

Gently lower the hardboiled or blown eggs into the egg dye. (The kit comes with instructions for how to prepare eggs both ways. Hardboiled eggs keep for up to 1 week; blown eggs keep indefinitely). 

Ainsley-Stirring-Eggs


An official stirring stick is not required (though obviously fun). We left our eggs in the dye longer than you would for typical egg dyes. Because these are natural vegetable extracts, the dye does take more time to become a vibrant color. We recommend leaving the eggs in the dye for 5 minutes to an hour (or longer, if desired).

Enjoy your beautiful, naturally dyed eggs!
