VIDEO: Easter Egg Dyeing, Naturally

Learn how to use natural pigments to dye eggs.


In April 2011, Manuela Seitz-Hipkins of Well Kiddos sponsored an egg coloring workshop and demonstration at for children and their parents. The process uses fruits (blueberries), vegetables (red cabbage, yellow onion peel) and spices (turmeric) to create a variety of colors -- the natural way.

Well Kiddos is a Half Moon Bay-based organization which advocates to local restaurants and businesses the importance of providing healthy food choices for children. Seitz-Hipkins' workshop showed how parents and their children can put healthy living into practice this Easter. 

A lunch of organic egg salad served on bunny-shaped sandwiches and jelly bean dispensers was served for children as well.
