4th Day, 4th Way

4.  Use natural dyes for Easter eggs
Being conscious about the footprint you're leaving behind does not mean you have to exclude crafts, and other hobbies.  It simply means coming at them with a different approach.  With Easter approaching this weekend, many families like to dye Easter eggs.  Not only is a great way to gather family and friends, it can be done with items you most likely have around the house.  Using natural dyes on your eggs is a good practice.  Chemicals will not be added to your eggs (if you plan on eating them), nor will they be put down the drain.

Here are a few links on how to make natural dyes.
