Kool Aid colored eggs

I found this “recipe” for egg dye that I thought was a great idea. The Wee One has been pestering me to allow him to dye eggs. He doesn’t eat any, though.

It’s easy and smells great.

All you need is Kool-aid packets and 2/3rds cup of hot water. That’s it. Make sure you have the surface you are using covered up with paper, though. It can stain otherwise. We put the paper towel down on a tray, so there was less mess. The Wee One can make a big one.

The grape flavor comes out dark, so add a bit of berry blue to it. And the pink lemonade comes out too light, so use a little bit of cherry.

Use a white crayon to create designs on the egg before dunking it in the dye.
