Easter_Eggs_BS_391461_0.jpgPlanning to decorate eggs for Easter this weekend? You could pick up an inexpensive egg decorating kit for an ultra convenient session of egg decorating. You could stick with the tried-and-true method of colouring eggs by splashing a few drops of food colouring into water to make colourful egg dyes. (Check out the helpful Color Creator wheel created by McCormick in this link.) For a change, you might want to try egg dying with natural colours. Visit this link, then take a look in your fridge or kitchen cupboards to see what options you have for creating natural colours for eggs. Or, it's not too late yet to check online or at your local library for these and other websites or books full of inspired ways to paint, adorn, decorate or embellish eggs. And if you know of some other links or books that should be on this list, please let me know!
