So, this year, instead of getting that free Paas coloring kit from CVS, I decided to ‘wing it’. I just wanted to work with what I had and see what I could do. Well, this worked out so well. The kids loved it!
I used the REGULAR Kool-aid packets. I used 4 different flavors and got 4 different colors. And the colors really varied a lot due to the length of time they were allowed to sit. Like there are 2 eggs in this picture that were dyed in the Grape (Purple) Kool-aid. One we let sit for about 2 minutes, the other one was an in and out dipped egg. One of the colors (Lemonade to get yellow) did not work at all. So I added a spoonful of the leftover red to get an orange egg.
So, here is what I did:
Using a deep bowl (I used a large cereal bowl from Ikea)
Add 2 packets of kool-aid (I probably could have gotten away with just 1 packet)
Add 1 teaspoon of vinegar
Add 1 cup of hot water
Stir until all is dissolved. Add your boiled eggs. Let sit until your egg is the color you want.
