Here is what you will need to dye your eggs:
Unsweetened Kool Aid drink mix in your choice of colors. You will find some helpful suggestions below as far as which ones to choose.
1 cup of cold water per Kool Aid packet
Cups for dying in. Plastic or glass works just fine.
One dozen eggs, hard boiled
If you are unsure about which Kool Aid flavors to try, here are some suggestions: Cherry, Watermelon, Berry Blue, Grape, Orange, and Lemon Lime. It is hard to get a yellow coloring with any of the yellow drink flavors, so it is one color/flavor you might want to skip. To get other shades, feel free to mix colors and experiment with them! There is no telling what kind of combinations you can come up with.
1. Place one cup of cold water into each cup.
2. Add a packet of Kool Aid drink mix to each cup and mix well.
3. Drop an egg into each cup. You want to be sure the egg is covered by the solution so it colors evenly. You will find that you will need to soak the eggs a good 10-15 minutes. Like most coloring kits, the longer you leave the eggs in the deeper the hue will be.
4. After the designated time, remove the egg with your spoon and place it back in the egg carton or on a towel to dry.
5. Discard any leftover drink mix and colored water. You don’t want to reuse it for anything when done dying.
