Our Easter eggs

This year we attempted to dye eggs with koolaid and it turned out really well. We used Blue raspberry, Lemonade with a little orange in it, Pink lemonade with a little cherry in it, Orange and Cherry.
The darker rust colored ones were brown eggs dyed in Cherry. We think the speckles were a result of the koolaid not being mixed well enough but they still turned out really cool.
All you need is a packet of koolaid and 2/3 cups of water. Easy peasy lemon squeezy as DD would say.

Kids are now chomping at the bit to eat them, LOL I said you have to wait and show the Easter Bunny

Very cute! I like the idea of koolaid- I will have to remember that for the next time I need to dye eggs.

Awesome! We did the same thing. Ds had to taste test his.

I used what I had on hand, blue raspberry lemonade, pink lemonade, black cherry, cherry. I made green and yellow with my frosting colors and a little vinegar and water.

Thanks for reminding me to put the eggs on to boil. We will be dying them after dinner.

Love the Koolaid idea for dye!

My nephew used to dye his hair with Kool-Aid (and then shape it into a Mohawk with glue - ah, good times, good times)

Great looking eggs!
