Tips for hard boiled eggs:

I’m not a fan of boiling eggs and it can be such a pain! I don’t care for the mess and the smell and just the entire process.

I always end up breaking a few by accidentally breaking them when I add them to the pot especially when I’m making such huge batches.

No worries though because you can learn how to bake hard boiled eggs in the oven. It is so easy!

This is also great for meal prep during the week and you can boil a bunch of eggs at once. We love to make life simpler!

So… Have you tried coloring your Easter Eggs with Kool-Aid? Leave a comment and let us know!

We love to dye Easter eggs this way. The kids love picking out the kool aid flavors to use.  You are going to love dying eggs with kool aid.

I think it is easier than using food coloring. Just keep in mind that results will vary based on methods.

If you want really deep and dark vibrant colors, leave the egg longer in the kool aid mixture. Keep in mind certain ones like lemonade flavor will not be as dark.

Make sure the kool aid is completely dissolved before you put the egg in each cup. Transfer eggs to paper or a drying rack to let the eggs dry completely.

If your children like to decorate the eggs once dyed, feel free to do that as well. You can use stickers, paint, chalk or anything you like!

Get creative and have a blast. Children will love choosing their own colors and designs.

I am always amazed at the creativity and how each child is so different. It is a blast to see how everyone chooses to design their eggs.
