Wild East Devon Easter Outdoor Activity: Egg Dying 🐣

In today’s Easter holiday activity we are dying eggs. Go out foraging for interestingly shaped small leaves to lay over your eggs. Once held in place using old tights the leaves stop any dye from reaching the egg and so leave a silhouette when removed. Boiling the eggs wrapped in onion skins dyes the eggs a darker brown or you could use red cabbage which dyes the eggs blue (I didn’t have any at home to demonstrate this). Alternatively submerge the eggs in a strong solution of food dye or the insides of felt pens soaked in water. Try dying several eggs with different leaves and colours to make a lovely Easter display...
