Crazy Kool(-Aid) Eggs

Easy Easter Egg Dye

Last year, we  showed you how to dye pastel Easter eggs in a variety of naturally occurring organic colors.  This year, we were inspired by fellow blogger Hey Jen Renee, whose post about Kool-Aid dyed eggs is currently making the rounds on Pinterest.

Happy Easter!

To make Kool-Aid eggs, you will need:

Just add water

Just add water

  • a packet of Kool Aid
  • 2/3 cup of water (we used cold tap water)
  • a hard boiled egg
  • a glass or bowl
  • a slotted spoon

Empty the Kool-Aid packet into a glass or bowl. Add water. Stir until dissolved.

Gently place the egg into the glass or bowl.  Let the egg sit in the dye for varying periods of time to experiment with a variety of shades.  Remove with a slotted spoon.  Or remove by hand if you prefer colorfully dyed fingers.

Taste Test Experiment: I peeled and ate an egg shortly after dyeing it. No Kool-Aid flavor!
