Easy way to dye eggs

Kool-Aid Easter Egg Dye

were you aware that one of the staples of childhood can do more than make a special flavored drink for your children? Well it can make some pretty special colored eggs as well. You may ask how this can be done well let me share with you this very idea. Kids will love it and you will have the knowledge of just what is in the dye that you use to make those special colored eggs for Easter morning.

Use Kool-Aid to Dye Easter Eggs
Boil Eggs: Place eggs in a saucepan and cover them with cold water. Make sure the tops of the eggs are covered by at least an inch of water. Bring the water to a full boil, uncovered, then remove the pot from the heat and cover it. Let stand untouched for 15 minutes. Rinse in cool water. Note: Wipe eggs with a damp cloth before coloring to avoid uneven color or bubbles.

Prepare Dye: Use 2/3 cup of warm water per Kool-Aid packet. Stir. No need to add vinegar. For purple we did 1 packet Pink Lemonade and a couple of sprinkles of Grape Kool Aid.
