    In the old world, generations ago and long before artificial dyes, people added spring flowers to the water when the boiled the eggs. The colors were subtle and lovely. I have heard that this way of dyeing the eggs give a more even tone and lovely hue to the colors.

    Kool-aid works well and comes in many colors.  Natural dyes can come from berries, grasses, and flowers. Vegetables like beets and spinach would stain an egg.
