  • Eggs
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 2 Tbsp. White vinegar
For Yellow/Green Dye:
  • 1 cup spinach, chopped

  • For Blue Dye:
  • 1 cup cabbage, chopped

  • For Dark Blue Dye:
  • 1 cup blueberries

  • For Red Dye:
  • 2 cups Beets, chopped

  • For Purple Dye:
  • 1 cup blackberries

  • How to:

    1. Boil eggs and let cool.
    2. Gather the different produce items you’d like to try as a colorant (example: spinach, etc.).
    3. Measure out at least 1 cup of each produce item.
    4. Add 2 cups of water to a pot, and add at least one cup of produce. You will need a separate pot or pan for each colorant.
    5. Bring mixture to a boil and then turn heat down to a simmer for 15 minutes.
    6. Pour through a sieve into a container.
    7. Add 1 Tbsp. of vinegar and stir. If you’re working with kids, let cool before use.
    8. Rub egg with a bit of vinegar with a cloth or paper towel. Place the egg into the container. The longer you leave the egg in, the deeper the color.
    9. Take eggs out of dye and let dry for several hours or overnight before handling.
