What food can you paint Easter eggs with??
Spring is already very noticeable and there is not much time left until one of the most beautiful festivals in the world. Whether you celebrate Easter for religious or pagan beliefs, everyone participates in the custom of “coloring Easter eggs”. The colorful play of colors is loved by young and old and, especially for the little ones, the festival means pure excitement.
What about you? Color eggs every year or buy them ready-made in the supermarket?
Paint Easter eggs like the world has always done
For all those who are always looking for cool alternatives and want to rediscover the festival every year, we have selected a well-known but somewhat forgotten technique of painting eggs, which our grandmothers or perhaps our grandmothers knew well. Painting Easter eggs with natural colors now sounds like expensive fun that sends you straight to the health food store.
No, the fun is great, but completely free, because we want to paint Easter eggs, only with food that we use as we do in our daily life.
It takes a little longer and the result is not a full-tone color, but ecological and at no cost
You understood that correctly – eggs can be colored with onion peels, turmeric or blueberries, for example, but you can also add beetroot, coffee and spinach wonderfully to the play of colors.
The results are not that gaudy and colorful, but very natural, tasty and, if you will, free of charge. With the knowledge of basic colors and color mixtures, you will achieve impressive color results that are entirely in keeping with ecology and sustainable trends.
Rediscover the natural colors and learn to love
Pass this useful knowledge on to your children and create the most beautiful Easter eggs they have made so far with the little ones without any worries. You may be very surprised by the colors because we forget what is really natural too quickly.
We very much hope that we have been able to help you again and wish you a special Easter with lots of knowledge and new ideas, because that is also the role of spring – to refresh us and recharge us with new strength.
