How To Dye Easter Eggs With Kool-Aid

I've seen the idea of dying various things with Kool-Aid. Most recently I found a wonderful idea called Crockpot Yarn Dying on a fun blog called I've even seen tutorials where you can color latex paint with Kool-Aid.

So, I thought I'd give dying Easter Eggs a try, as I had heard this is becoming pretty popular. I boiled up a few eggs, and into the Kool-Aid they went. I mixed 1 Kool-Aid packet in about 1/2 cup of water. That's it, no vinegar needed and it only took a few minutes for them to get dark in color. The results are quite beautiful and as they dry, they even begin to speckle a bit.

I tried 5 different flavors, Grape, Cherry, Lemon Lime, Strawberry and Orange. When I removed them, I put them on a cooling rack setting on top of a paper towel lined cookie sheet to dry.

I have to admit, when I took out the grape, I thought it was pretty ugly. When wet, it looked dark blackish brown. I was disappointed it wasn't purple. But, as it dried, it actually turned out to be a favorite. I think the bluish, brown color is quite unique. Although it is a bit reminiscent of an avocado among the rest of the spring colors.

Also, while I did not do this with my eggs, Kraft Foods shows a mixture of 2 packets (of the same color) of Kool-Aid with 2 Tablespoons of water and then spoon the mixture over wet eggs, instead of dipping, to make a Tie Dye effect. I'll have to try this next time for more creative fun.
