Dye your eggs with a Kool (Aid) Twist on the traditional way of decorating eggs! It’s a fun and easy way to utilize the bright colors Kool-Aid has to offer!
Tip: Mix different flavors in order to come up with new colors (for example: Lemonade and Berry Blue will give you a green).
All you have to do is remember 2 and 2 – two unsweetened packets of Kool-Aid (they can be the same two flavors or two different flavors if you’re mixing colors) and 2 tablespoons of water.
Tip: I used wide-mouth Ball jars to mix my Kool-Aid because they have lids and are great for preventing spillage.
Place your hard-boiled egg into the jar and roll it around for even coverage. For deeper colors, submerge the eggs for longer. Quickly rinse the eggs with water to let the color set and transfer the eggs to a cooling rack with paper towels underneath.
You can create different types of patterns on the eggs with rubber bands, scrapbooking stickers, and rubber cement.
Rubber Bands: Double-wrap them over the eggs to make sure the dye doesn’t seep underneath and use varying sizes for different effects.
Scrapbooking Sticker: Monogram your eggs by placing scrapbooking letter stickers on a dry egg before submerging it into the Kool-Aid.
Rubber Cement: For an abstract design, drizzle rubber cement onto an egg and let it dry completely (it will be slightly sticky/tacky). Submerge your egg into the Kool-Aid and after rinsing it, make sure the egg dries completely before peeling off the rubber cement.
