For years, I have dyed my Easter eggs in whatever is conveniently sold
from my supermarket shelves, doing that whole rationalizing thing: It’s
only for one day! They eat two pounds of jelly beans, what’s a little
dye? I just don’t have time to mash berries for color!”
But now, the smart and creative minds at eco-kids, whose eco-dough and eco-paint are among our beloved craft supplies, have come out with a new-and-improved eco-eggs natural Easter egg coloring kit for this year that really delivers those ooooh’s.
These concentrated colors don’t come cheap but they do color a ton of
eggs–instead of dumping your kit, save it and do another round in a few days. A word of warning though: They stain your fingers for a day so do make sure you open the powder dyes yourself, or risk looking like you all spent Easter at an Indian Holi festival. –Christina
