    dye easter eggs with kool-aid (NEVER buying egg dye again!) why not? It smells fruity and awesome. It makes me nostalgic for hot summer days at the pool. Time to make some Kool-Eggs. Not only will the Kool-Aid make your kitchen smell super sweet, you'll get some fantastically vivid results. You can usually pick up five Kool-Aid packets for $1.00, so this is a fun and inexpensive way to change up your annual egg dyeing adventures. Kids will find this soooo exciting. So let's start with the eggs. Every year, I seem to forget exactly how long to boil them, so here are the directions I use. To make things extra simple for you. After your eggs are ready to go, it's time to find some small containers and get your Kool-Aid packets ready to go. This is really all you need, because Kool-Aid has citric acid in it. No need for vinegar! Add one packet of Kool-Aid to 2/3 cup of water and stir. That's it. I used both lukewarm and cold water and it didn't really make a difference with how our eggs turned out. Keep in mind that Kool-Aid powder is pretty messy, so you should do all of the mixing over your sink to prevent your counter tops from turning different colors the next time you wipe them off.

    Easter Egg Dye - Here is another great idea to Easter. Instead of buying those dying kits, use koolaid. One pack of Koolaid and 2/3 cups water and you've got awesome egg dye. Two bonuses is, it's cheaper than those boxes of egg dye and it smells so yummy! :) Side note, if you use the lemonade flavor, mix it with a little bit of orange cause the lemonade doesn't dye too good.

I must remember this at Easter. To color the whites (after eggs have been boiled and yolks removed): Fill glass containers about half-full of water, and then add food coloring to each one to get the shades you desire. Adjust the amount of food coloring, depending on the intensity of the color you desire. Place the egg halves in the water, making sure that the entire surface of each egg is covered. Let the eggs sit at least one hour until you achieve the desired effect. Remove the eggs from t...
