I have 4 of my grand-kids over for the night so we decided to color Easter eggs. My daughter came across this idea on Pinterest about how to color Easter eggs with Kool-Aid. What a great idea! I have tried using vegetables to dye the eggs but the results were less then spectacular. Kind of stinky too. Kool-Aid smells wonderful! The kids thought it was amazing but wanted to drink in afterwards and kept sticking their little fingers in the cups. They turned out pretty good and the kids had fun. The cost was less then $1.00. Not to shabby.
Here is what you:
Place eggs in a large saucepan. Add water to cover the eggs.
Bring to a boil.
Cover, turn off heat and leave for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and run cold water over then. I add ice to cool them quick.
Let dry. Fill 6 cups with 2/3 cup cool water.
Add Kool-Aid. Mix well. Dip eggs into colors.
The longer you leave the eggs in the darker the color will be.
Remove eggs and place on a paper towel to dry.
Refrigerate after coloring. You may want to keep them in a closed container because they sure are fruity smelling. :) I would do this again next year. Maybe mix the colors to make different shades. The kids had so much fun.
