You will need Kool-Aid packets, as many as you’d like, and eggs. We suggest cherry, mixed berry, orange and lemon for colors. You may have to leave the eggs in lemon longer than other colors to get a good yellow.
Hard boil the eggs: Put a layer of eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and remove from heat. Let sit for 12-15 minutes. Rinse with cool water or set in fridge until you’re ready to color.
Mix each Kool-Aid packet with about 2/3 to 1 cup of water.
Pour Kool-Aid into different containers large enough to dip eggs so they’re completely immersed in water.
Put an egg in the container and leave it in for at least 5 minutes to color. Leave in longer to brighten the shade. Use a spoon or a dipping tong to remove.
Set on paper towel or place in carton to dry. Refrigerate to preserve for up to one week.
If Kool-Aid isn’t quite your thing here’s a way to make homemade dyes using simple ingredients in the grocery store or just pick up some food coloring and vinegar for the traditional method.
