Hop. Hop. Hippity Hop! Thatbunny will be here in just a few days, and wouldn’t it be fun if he arrived with a basket of all natural, beautifully dyed Easter eggs?This spring, let’s leave thoseartificial dye pellets in all of their excess packaging at the market, and opt for coloring eggs with a few simple kitchen ingredients instead. It’s safe, economical, and fun!
