Did you know that you can Dye Easter eggs with Kool-Aid? It works!! Genius!
Easter is on the way and you know that means dying Easter eggs. It’s fun, but messy. As well, I always worry about the chemicals in the dye. When you Dye Easter eggs with Kool-Aid, you don’t have to worry so much about really young child ingesting harmful dies. Granted you still need to supervise.
You can use this old-school drink mix to color your Easter eggs. And, you don’t have to leave them in the water very long before you see them become brightly colored.
All you need is a few packets of powdered Kool-Aid drink mix, hard-boiled eggs, water, and cups in which to mix and dunk.
2/3 cup water, (tap water – doesn’t have to be warm)
1 pkg. Kool Aid
Mix water and Kool Aid. Drop the boiled egg in water and allow to sit a couple of minutes until begins to turn colors. Remove from water and allow to dry.
|This is all you need!|
|Dissolve Kool Aid (all I had was off brand, it worked beautifully!)|
|Egg in the Kool Aid bath.|
Dye Easter eggs with Kool-Aid
You don’t need vinegar because Kool Aid is already acidic.
Lemonade and pink lemonade do not turn out very well when used for egg decorating.
Grape turns an ugly dark color as an egg dye.
You can add some Berry Blue to the grape to lighten it and add some strawberry or cherry to the pink lemonade for a pretty shade of pink
