Did you know that you could use Kool-Aid to dye Easter Eggs? With Easter right around the corner, I wanted to share with you our favorite way to color our Easter Eggs.  I like to dye hard boiled eggs for the kids year round, just for fun.  Plus, they make a fun, healthy snack and are easy to distinguish between raw and hard boiled. This is always a hit with the kids!

Kool-Aid Easter Egg Dye

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.

Use Kool-Aid to Dye Easter Eggs

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.

Color: Get your little helper(s) to dye the eggs. Mine really enjoyed smelling all of the fruity flavors and guessing which scent went with each color.
