kool-aid Easter eggs

I saw this awesome idea on Hey! Jen Renee last year and I couldn’t wait to try it. She calls them Kool-eggs which is genius, lol. It’s a pretty brilliant idea using just kool-aid and water. No need for any vinegar because kool-aid contains citric acid itself. Dying Easter eggs has become an annual Easter tradition in our house and this just gave it a new fruity twist. The kiddos had a blast dying their eggs yesterday. We only did 1 dozen and they were kind of disappointed when we were done! I just didn’t want to make any more than we would be able to eat. They smell really fruity when they first come out of the kool-aid/water mixture, but when they dry, they are just like regular Easter eggs. I think this will definitely be a method we do again. Stop by the blog tomorrow to see what we did with our Easter eggs! Here’s how you make them:

What you’ll need

single-serving pouches of kool-aid
hard-boiled eggs
plastic tablecloth – this will prevent stains on your table if it spills


1. lay a plastic tablecloth down on your table to prevent stains if the kool-aid mixture spills

2. in a cup, mix entire contents of kool-aid packet with 2/3 cups water. Stir until kool-aid is dissolved.

* with the packet of purple kool-aid, I added less kool-aid powder and more water. The purple kool-aid will turn the egg dark gray really quickly, by adding less powder and more water, we got a nice purple colour

3. put some hard-boiled eggs in the kool-aid mixture and take them out when you reach your desired colour

4. let the eggs dry in the egg carton

    So glad I saw this! I’m getting ready to head out to the store to buy egg dye, but now I’ll get kool-aid instead! After ours dry, we’re going to add stickers and use crayons and markers to decorate.

    Great photos Jill! We did this as well and I went based off of the same website as you. Kool-eggs! Too cute. So fun. They smell so good!

    What a great idea! Our chickens lay brown eggs, so I usually peel the eggs before we dye them to get actual colors. I also don’t use vinegar because I want people to actually eat our eggs. Kool-Aid eggs would give a lot brighter colors than the water and dye that I’ve been using! Thanks for the heads up! Great idea.

    Thank-you so much ladies! The kool-aid produced really nice colors, the kids had a blast, and it’s definitely one we’ll be doing again!
