TURLOCK, Calif., April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gemperle Family Farms -- known for its hormone-free and antibiotic-free eggs -- has come up with all-natural, kid friendly activities to help celebrate the Easter holiday. One of the highlighted activities takes the classic Easter tradition of dying eggs and puts an all-natural twist on it.
With longer days and warmer weather, Easter is the ideal time for kids to be out exploring nature. At Gemperle Egg Ranch they send the kids out on a scavenger hunt for the ingredients and then come together for a family fun activity where everyone has a blast. Children will hold onto these memories long after the chocolate bunnies melt and the jelly beans disappear.
"Easter is the perfect time to spend quality time with your family as winter fades into spring," said Gemperle Family Farms VP Mike Gemperle. "At Gemperle Farms, we rely on our Swiss family traditions and use an all-natural method for dying eggs. With blooms and buds popping up all over, Swiss egg decorating takes the all-natural elements of spring and includes them in the egg dying process."
Instead of using chemicals or fake dyes, Gemperle Farm's uses the centuries old springtime tradition where plant ingredients and other all natural materials, such as onion skins, cabbage, and beets, are used to add naturally occurring colors, while flowers, leaves, and other natural materials add on beautiful patterns.
To get a glimpse of these beautiful Gemperle egg creations, check out our test runs and a few of our finished eggs at our Gemperle website.
In addition to egg dying, Gemperle Farm's has other kid-friendly Easter ideas. None of these activities are elaborate or complicated and all feature all-natural ingredients and of course Gemperle eggs!
Our Braided Swiss Egg Bread creates a beautiful and edible Easter centerpiece that will have guests asking for seconds and thirds. For those looking for an innovative, non-candy craft idea, Gemperle Farm's Easter Egg Seed Bomb shows kids how to hollow out an egg to create an egg bomb. Fill the egg with seeds, and kids have an exciting game that encourages even more springtime growth and helps spread the beauty of the season.
