The Great Easter Egg Hunt

The Great Easter Egg Hunt

 

 

 

 

 

 

Easter is just around the corner and time for that age old tradition of dying Easter Eggs. The ethnic origins are boundless with ornate decorations with spiritual meaning or humble designs and down right folk artish. The best thing is to get the children involved in an Easter Egg hunt. Boiling eggs and then using flower petals, rose, daffodils, tulips and fruit dies such as blueberry, cranberry, pomegrante, lemon, lime and orange zest in warm water over a short period will make a good natural colouring agent. Just boil the eggs till hard boiled and add directly to the different bowls of coloured waters. Back when I was a kid my dad pretended to lay eggs at Easter. He would strut around like a hen and then would squat on the floor and cackle dropping an egg from his pocket which as a kid was fascinating.

Have a happy Easter.

Cheers!
