 I like to play. One of the funny things I like to do since a was a little child is colouirng eggs in Easter.  Here are some tips for using natural things to colour eggs, and a vdeo is here also to show you other tips.

  • To get a bluish purple colour, you need to boil some Hibiscus leaves in water for 2 mniutes.  
  • To get yellow colour Boil onion skin in water for 20 minute.
  • To get green colour mince parsely and boil it n water for 20 minutes.
  •  To get brown colour, boil tea for 5 minutes.

You can cook eggs in the coloured water separately for 10 minutes then let them cool down. You can then arrange them in a basket.
