With Easter only a few days away, Kourtney Kardashian is sharing how she makes dyeing eggs fun — without using chemicals.

The reality star, 37, who is mom to sons Mason, 7, and Reign, 2, and daughter Penelope, 4, says the activity is one of her favorites to do with her family.

“The last several years, we have been using fruits and vegetables to make all-natural dyes,” Kardashian says on her website. “Some of the colors show up quickly, others take longer for the pigment to appear, so we leave them in overnight. The kids love to experiment with and decorate their eggs in their own unique way.”
