How to Dye Easter Eggs with Kool Aid

Yesterday, I shared with you the Easter Egg Dyeing party we had last weekend. We had so much fun with our friends dyeing eggs and trying some new things. This year, I skipped the traditional egg dyes and experimented with the ever popular Kool Aid dyeing method.

Dyeing eggs with Kool Aid is not only inexpensive (packets were only $.24 at my store!) but you could do this all year round! Why only have fun dyeing eggs at Easter time?

So how do you do it? Here’s what you need:

That’s it!


First, boil your eggs! Don’t know how to do it? Well, it’s easy peasy! Place your eggs at the bottom of a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and remove from heat. Let your eggs sit for about 15 minutes. After they are done, place them in a bowl of cold water to chill. If you are using your eggs for dyeing right away, make sure you dry them off!

Now that your eggs are boiled, it’s time to get the dye ready. Empty your Kool Aid packet into a plastic cup. Add 2/3 cup of water. It doesn’t matter if the water is cold or warm. Mix until the Kool Aid is dissolved. You are ready to now dye your eggs!

Drop your eggs in the dye and wait. It doesn’t take long for the Kool Aid dye to adhere to the eggs.

Let your eggs dry and make sure you keep them refrigerated after you are done. Hard boiled eggs will keep in the fridge for about one week!

Happy Egg Dyeing!

  1. What a fun idea! We tried using food coloring and vinegar last year, but weren’t all that impressed with some of the colors. I will have to try using Kool-Aid this year.

  2. We always do the food coloring version. I never knew Kool-aid would work! What a fun and easy way to go!!!

  3. Wonderful tip! Never thought to use cool aid for egg dyeing. My daughter will be dyeing eggs for the first time this year, and I wasn’t quite a fan of the other box dyes I’ve seen (they stain EVERYTHING, and some of them have such a distinct smell), but this trick will totally work for us! I can’t wait to try it 🙂 Thank you for sharing ; so glad I found you the the Ladies Collective Linky 🙂

  4. This is a cool idea and the colors are bright. They came out awesome!

  5. Such a great idea. These came out so good. Your kids look like they are having so much fun. Thanks for sharing this at the This is How We Roll Link Party! See you on Thursday.

  6. Thanks for a wonderful idea! We Greek Orthodox Christians have a Tradition of dyeing eggs vivid red for Pascha (Easter) but it can be VERY hard to find red dyes in this country. This is a great thing to know! : )
