Thanks to Pinterest, I found a new way to dye our eggs for Easter. Instead of vinegar and those little tablets, we decided to color our eggs with a little water and Kool-aid. Of course this all depended on if I was successful in hard boiling the eggs. I know it's easy, but I've failed more than I care to admit at that process!
2/3 cup water and 1 packet of Kool-aid
is all we needed for each mug.
A fancy Tupperware spoon for dying eggs
didn't hurt either!
We avoided yellow because it's a light color, but we chose to go with pink. Eggs in pink had to sit a while before the color took. But good thing I read the entire blog with directions or I never would have known that purple could turn the eggs gray if left in too long.
All of our eggs turned out so well! The colors were bright and cheery. Even using a white crayon to write on the eggs turned out. Instead of smelling like vinegar, our house smelled pretty and fruity. Some of our favorite eggs were...
Little Dude's robin egg.
Just by chance it came out speckled!
Little Dude also dipped in egg in every color.
We decided this resembled a dinosaur egg.
GG took advantage of her egg holder to make stripes.
Doesn't this look like it should be made of Jell-o?
The kids had so much fun with this new way of dying eggs!
Making the dye was easy
Clean up easy was easy
Nothing stained from the Kool-aid
And GG even did at little advertising for me!
How was your Easter? Do you have any traditions? Did you try anything new this year?
