Norfolk, NE: Egg-dyeing Tradition Lives On With A New Twist

Egg dyeing at Easter time is an often-loved tradition. For residents at Heritage of Bel-Air, this tradition turned into an art project. Instead of dipping the hard-boiled eggs into dye, this year residents used a rice method! Food coloring was added to a small plastic baggie filled with some rice. Once the residents mixed the color into the rice, the egg was added to the baggie. Massaging the colored rice onto the egg created a colorful textured look without the mess of liquid dye.
