Easter in the Land of No Egg Kits

So, we decided to have an egg hunt tomorrow (for my godson -- the rest of us will all be adults, playing along, or pretending to only be playing along).

Immediately we realized our challenge -- we live in a Land of No Egg-Dyeing Kits. And, we looked around at the stores and did not find any food coloring (yes, we do not live in the United States).

Luckily I remembered that some all-natural types use various plant and food items to color eggs naturally. Can you guess (without looking it up on the internet) which natural "dyes" were used for each of these eggs?

I guess beets for the first one. Mom guesses carrots for the second one. And melted wax on the third.

We think they look WAY cooler than egg-kit eggs.

The correct answers are, right to left -- onion skins, turmeric and beets. (I know, I expected much better results from the beets! But the onion skins turned out to be the strongest dye.)
