Hello, beautiful. One of my favorite Easter family traditions from when I was a kid is coloring Easter eggs. I am embarrassed to admit that I have yet to share this tradition with Mila and Kaiya. Each year I had intended to color Easter eggs with them, but time would escape me or I would simply forget (hello twin mommy brain). This year I was determined to make this tradition happen. Because I’m the crazy organic mommy, I was thrilled to discover Eco-eggs by Eco-kids. Eco-eggs coloring kit uses all natural and organic plant, fruit, and veggie dyes, making this Easter tradition non-toxic and kinder to your kiddos and the to environment. Yay! A win-win for us and the planet.
Mila and Kaiya’s cousin, Lulu, got to join us for this fun family activity. Eco-eggs comes with three color packs as well as a grass growing kit. The grass growing kit was a pleasant surprise that I wish I had noticed before so we could have had time to grow some grass for our colored Easter eggs (there’s that twin mommy brain sabotaging things again). This was super simple and the girls loved it. We first dissolved the dye packets into a cup of warm water. Then the girls gently placed the eggs in the dye and watched the magic happen. Since they had never colored Easter eggs before (I still can’t believe they’ve been deprived of this until now), this was such a thrill for them as they squealed with delight. The kit comes with orange, blue, and purple dyes. You can also dip the eggs in more than one color to create other hues. The instructions suggested leaving the eggs in the dye for about 8 minutes. We discovered, however, that it only took 10-20 seconds to get these bright colors. As you can see, these cousins had a blast coloring their Easter eggs.
Wishing you a very colorful and eggcellent Easter!
