And if you would like to make your own natural organic Easter Egg dye, here's how to do it! And see these pages for a history of the Easter egg or the history of Easter egg hunts, and the origin of the Easter Bunny!  This page shows you how to hard boil eggs and this page how to blow (or empty) an egg.
