Easter is coming and I came across this activity which I thought was really cool…not as convenient as store bought coloring kits, but environmentally friendly.  You would use some (or all) of the following ingredients:
  1. Items used to create various colors of dye:
  • Pink/red: Pomegranate juice, red onion skins, beets, chopped rhubarb stalks, cranberry juice, red grape juice
  • Orange: Yellow onion skins, paprika, chili powder
  • Yellow: Orange or lemon peels, shredded carrot, celery seed, ground cumin
  • Green: Spinach
  • Blue: Red cabbage, blueberry juice, blackberries, purple grape juice
  • Brown: Dill seeds, black walnut shells, instant coffee, tea

You can get the directions in complete HERE.  They have other projects too…click on the link at the bottom of the page that says “more projects” :-).  How cool is this!?….Have fun!
