There is something magical about art – I find a lot of comfort and ease through it. It’s as though time slows down while things are getting created.

These beautiful natural dyed eggs aren’t just for Easter, they’re actually a really fun activity to do anytime of year with your little ones (or for yourself).

Recipe –
1 x small container of blueberries (blended)
2 x onions (peel and use only the skin)
8-10 x small beets (chopped)

1. Fill small pot up with water. Use one pot per colour.
2. Bring water to boil and add 1 tbs of salt and 1 tbs of vinegar
3. Add in your fruit/vegetable and let it boil for 15 minutes
4. Turn off heat and let it simmer for another 10 minutes
5. Strain liquid into a bowl
6. Let liquid cool until it reaches room temperature
7. Submerge boiled eggs in dye and let it air dry

Note: The longer you leave your eggs in the dye, the darker and more vibrant they’ll be. I left mine in there for around 10-20 seconds for the darker colours and about a minute for the lighter yellow tones.

Storage: Did you know hard boil eggs can last in the fridge for up to a week. Because these are naturally dyed, you can consume them after all the fun is over. This will lead to less food waste and more nutritious food in our bellies!
