You Can Eat These Easter Eggs

You Can Eat These Easter Eggs

When Laura and I worked at FASHION Magazine we all used to joke that if someone tracked how many times a day we all said, “That’s cute” it would be a very high number (and an embarrassment). But listen, a lot of cute stuff came through that office! Now the thing I say so many times I can’t count is, “No, Julian, not for eating!” And he always gives me the same look. Like, “Really, have you tried a phone charger? Do you know for sure it’s not delicious?”

What I really don’t like is having to say it about food! Esme’s already started asking me about decorating eggs and I’ve been wondering if I’m really going to bust out the onion skin method to make a non-toxic dye. (If you are I want to hear about it!) The pack we bought last year made me uncomfortable about allowing Esme to actually eat the hard boiled egg inside the brightly coloured shell. And that seems ridiculous, no? Then I found these! The dyes in the Eco Egg Easter Colouring Kit are made from fruit and vegetable extracts like blueberries and beetroots and are safe if consumed. No, you’re not meant to consume it but in my house there’s a real possibility that it will happen anyway. The kit comes with three dyes and a colour mixing chart to create six colours. That’s cute! $19.50 at www.lavishandlime.com

    Cute idea, but you can do it yourself for much cheaper.

    Kids also get a kick out of seeing how you can take foods they eat, and dye things with them! We also do this with our homemade play dough.

    Total cost for our easter egg dying last year? 5 bucks. Most of the stuff we already had around our house.
