These natural egg dyes will bring even more magic to your Easter eggs

Dyeing Easter eggs naturally can be a lot of fun. Children love the experience of turning everyday foods into dyes and watching their masterpieces come to life.

Brown is one of the simplest dyes to make at home. Soaking eggs is a strong brew of coffee with a tablespoon of vinegar will leave you with the perfect brown eggs.

Red and pink Easter eggs can be made by boiling the skins of two to three red onions (sometimes called Spanish onions) in 1 cup of water and 1 tablespoon of vinegar.

Yellow is such a bright and cheery color for Easter eggs. For a bright yellow that sticks well to eggs, use 3 teaspoons of turmeric powder in 1 cup of water and bring to a simmer until the turmeric is dissolved.
