Just as the trees of young children everywhere are not immune to hanging plastic eggs, so true is the same of your television screen and picking up at least one Easter-related tip from Martha Stewart.

The Queen of Home Design is highlighting a quick and easy way to dye some Easter eggs using only kitchen scraps and some goods from your spice cabinet. From the article,

“Your kitchen is full of natural dyes. Common food items such as red cabbage, onion skins, and coffee can be used to transform plain white eggs into colorful Easter gems. Kids will especially love discovering all the different colors they can create — let them experiment using hard-boiled eggs and bowls of cold dyes.”

Stewart lists red cabbage, turmeric, onion skins, beets, and coffee as natural dyes. As you might remember, Martha had a green special with Simran Sethi (co-host with Majora Carter of the Sundance Channel’s THE GREEN) last year in which she discussed some eco-friendly materials such recycled glass tiles, cork flooring and modular carpeting. We’re hoping Martha makes such specials an annual event. Hit the article for all the steps on how you too can have a green Easter.
