You know when you wait until the last minute to dye Easter eggs, and you go to the store, and there are only sad, broken eggs and an empty space where there used to be egg-dying kits? Yeah, that. I’m kind of that girl.

But if you’re that girl too then I have a brilliant idea for you! Actually, lots of people have had this brilliant idea but this is the first time I’ve tried it. And I’m going to break it down for you. So on the day before Easter when the dye is all gone, just go get some Kool-Aid and you’re golden.

Basically, it’s rad because all you need is Kool-Aid and water — no vinegar, no icky chemicals, blah blah blah. And it smells delicious, like a candy factory. So grab a bunch of different packets, some cups, and you’re good to go.

I used about 2/3 cup of water to dissolve each packet. The flavors I chose were Strawberry, Lemonade, Black Cherry, Grape, Lemon-Lime, and Berry Blue.

A few things to know: Lemonade will not make your eggs yellow. It’ll just kind of make ‘em off-white. And Grape makes them a sort of grey-ish brown, which I actually loved (next week I’ll show you what I did with the Grape eggs). So the key to getting lots of colors from a Kool-Aid dye is mixing the packets.

Rad, right? If I had to do it over again I’d get a few more packets — I mean, if you can get five for a buck you might as well go to town! So do it up right and get every color in the rainbow. Happy dying! xoxo

    These are great! I love how soft the colors are.

  3. What fun! I absolutely LOVE this idea, and we’ll certainly be dying eggs with KoolAid this year. Thanks for sharing, lady!

    These are beautiful, but is it less expensive than regular egg dye kits?

      It will really depend on your grocery prices. I got 6 Kool-Aid packets for $1.50, and the egg dye kits at my grocery were about $3 or $4.

  5. I can’t tell you how much I LOVE this. I like your colors better than the PAAS kits and the idea of it smelling like a candy factory while you are dying eggs… too good to pass up. Great post!

    Do you blow your eggs out or hard boil them? They are gorgeous!
