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.|
