I decided to combine history, science, religion, and fun. Cuz that’s why I homeschool, ya know?
We’re studying Colonial times in history. I don’t think they had Paas dye back then?
Coloring is math and math is science. And we did a sensory study – that’s science! (Honestly, I know that there’s a science with the vinegar and the different colors seeping out of the veggies, but we didn’t go all there.)
But, most importantly, it was fun!
Don’t they look like they’re having fun?!
I made a comparison chart for the girls to compare the various food items we used to dye the eggs. Apparently, I need vast quantities of spinach and cabbage and orange peels and apple peels or I should have prepped those dyes overnight or something. But those didn’t work.
We skipped the cabbage lines because they girls are convinced they will be purpley in the morning.

I know it’s past, but here’s my Passover Pinterest Board. Start a new tradition if you don’t already celebrate Passover.
My kids really enjoyed learning about The Last Supper and celebrating a Christian Seder the last three years! This year, we celebrated as a whole church and it was so special. Here’s my family’s table centerpiece.
Have you tried natural dyes before? What worked best for you?
