Easter eggs so natural, they come with their own Easter grass

Along with eating an entire bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs (ugh), I’ve kicked off the Easter season by dyeing dozens of Easter eggs with my kids. And since our family consumes a ton of hardboiled eggs, I like to use natural dyes on them whenever possible. I’ve used the eco-kids eco egg coloring kit before and this year it has gone even more green, so to speak, with the inclusion of a grass-growing kit that is way more eco-friendly and educational than packages of neon-colored synthetic grass. Related: How to dye Easter eggs naturally: Step-by-step instructions and inspiration I have to admit I was a bit skeptical that anything more...

At least in my home. (See also: My front door. Any time of year.)

So taking a cue from the coloring mandalas that they love, I found some more intricate, advanced, free printable Easter coloring pages that will...

How to dye Easter eggs with food coloring and get just the right shade? Ask the experts.

I am imagining that the McCormick’s website must get more traffic this time of year than any other, considering that it’s pretty much homebase for anyone wanting to know just how to dye Easter eggs with food coloring, and just which exact combo of those teeny little drops will yield the perfect hues. While we’ve shared some cool natural ways to dye your Easter eggs, I also understand that when it comes to kids, sometimes a pale kinda-yellow-brown isn’t going to cut it when what they really want is bright neon orange. And that a kid like mine who loves turquoise (this year) will probably...

Ridiculously delicious, all-natural Easter candy options that earns their place in the basket. Bring it on Easter bunny.

Let’s be honest: Easter candy is pretty much sugar and more sugar mixed with high fructose corn syrup with a dash of artificial food coloring. And we love every bite. I’m a believer in everything in moderation and am all for Easter being one of two days a year when we throw moderation for candy out the window. That said, if we can add a few all-natural options to the basket, I’m all for that, too. When all-natural Easter candy is as good as these 7 finds, why not.
