This is actually I post a wrote a couple years ago on how to color Easter eggs with Kool-Aid.  I like to try different ways to color the eggs. These turned out pretty good. I haven’t decided on how we will be coloring them this year so stay tuned. 🙂
My grandkids all stayed over for the night so we decided to color Easter eggs. A couple years ago we colored our eggs using different vegetables. It was fun but the kids thought the color was bland.
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.
