dyeing easter eggs 2014


this year, i tried making my own dyes. i used yellow and red onion skins, beets, spinach, red cabbage, and turmeric. 
z and the eggs

eggs are sitting in the dyes

oohh - pretty! i think that was from the red onion skins. 

another good one, from the yellow onion skin.

all the eggs

z & s had fun with the leftover dye.

playing with the dye in the sink.


i let the kids do a watercolor painting outside with some of the leftover dye.

this was our dinner that night. leftover curried meatballs, roasted cabbage, and beets. nothing got wasted. my freezer is filled with frozen chopped onions, for future use. i froze them in muffin tins.
