How to Dye Eggs Using Kool-Aid!
All you need is Kool-Aid and water!
I’m always looking for new activites to do with the kids. We tried these Kool-Aid Dyed Easter Eggs and my kids told me that this is THE BEST WAY to dye eggs! I think they just like the fruity smell, but it is cheap, easy and faster than other egg dyes, plus it does not require any vinegar! All you need is 2/3 cup water and a Kool-Aid packet! You can usually find Kool-Aid for around $0.10- $0.20 each so it is a frugal way to dye eggs!
1 packet Kool-Aid
2/3 cup Water
Boiled Eggs- (see our tutorial for The Secret to Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs)
Place the eggs in the dye. It only takes a couple minutes and the eggs are a vibrant color. Remove them and dry on a cooling rack or in the egg carton. Much better color than normal dye in my opinion! Plus you will have a fruity kitchen smell!
You can see how the colors turn out with the different flavors. I would suggest not using Plain lemonade. It is not very dark but Pink Lemonade turns out nicely. Grape Kool-Aid turns out really dark after 30 seconds so I would suggest not leaving it in very long at all! The eggs also have a subtle speckle on them too!
Also, I would not worry about this making your eggs turn fruity flavored because the dye without sugar is not sweet at all. I could never detect any flavor. I did not notice it turning my children’s hands colors from handling them. 🙂 We had a fun time coloring eggs this way…hope you do too!~
