Easter is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than by dying some eggs in a bright and cheerful 'Bishop's Move' yellow colour? Yellow is the quintessential colour of Easter and springtime, evoking the warmth of the sun, the blossoming of flowers, and the joyful chirping of newly hatched chicks.
Here's a simple and fun way to make your own yellow egg dye at home with only three store cupboard ingredients.
Once you've made your dye, it's time to get creative! You can use stickers, markers, or tape to create fun designs on your eggs before dipping them in the dye. Or, if you're feeling adventurous, try a technique called "resist dyeing". Draw on your egg with a white crayon before dipping it in the yellow dye. The areas covered in wax will resist the dye and create a cool pattern on your egg.
And if yellow isn't your favourite colour, don't worry! There are plenty of other homemade egg dye recipes to choose from. Red cabbage (yes really!) is ideal for creating calming blues, whilst onion skins or chilli powder create bold oranges for a bright look. Beetroot is perfect of creating reddish pinks and green cabbage can produce a fresh looking green with a springy vibe. Mix and match colours to create a whole rainbow of fun and colourful eggs!
Here in the UK, Easter is a time for family and friends to come together, enjoy delicious food, and celebrate the beginning of spring. Dyeing eggs is a fun and traditional activity that the whole family can enjoy, regardless of age. It's a great way to get creative and add some colour to your home, whether you use the eggs as a centrepiece or hide them for an Easter egg hunt.
So why not try making your own yellow egg dye this, Easter? It's a simple and fun activity that will bring a smile to your face and brighten up your home.
Happy Easter from Bishop's Move!
