We are going to show you how to dye Easter eggs with kool aid for gorgeous Easter eggs. Have you heard of coloring your Easter Eggs with Kool-aid?
It is actually very easy to do and the kids just love it! You don’t have to special dye at the store to color your eggs vibrant colors. You just need Kool-Aid and water.
I love that I don’t need any of those kits and there isn’t any need to purchase items like vinegar. You just need water and kool aid! Easy!
This saves money and time and the eggs look so pretty. I almost always have packets of Kool Aid so it makes it even easier to do this with the kids.
Can you color Easter eggs with Kool Aid?
Yes! You most certainly can and it is one of our favorite ways to dye eggs. It is super easy and does not require any kits or expensive ingredients.
We also love to make tie dye Easter eggs with shaving cream for another fun idea. Can you tell we like to use things we already have at home? 🙂

Here is how to Color Easter Eggs with Kool-aid:
Take 1 package of kool-aid and desolve with 2/3 cup of water (some have used 1 cup of water). If you use less water, you will get more vibrant colors.
Dip your eggs like you normally would. Allow the color to penetrate fully.
Let dry completely.
Dying easter eggs with kool aid is seriously that easy!
You can still decorate your eggs and try to get different designs with glue, string, crayons, etc… The possibilities are endless!
I am terrible about forgetting to pick up those easter egg kits at the store so I just love this idea! I don’t have to buy anything special and can just run to to the pantry.
It is a win all around!
Recommended flavors that you try:
- Cherry and Lemonade
- Blue Raspberry
- Lemon Lime
- Peach Mango
Just remember, leave the egg in the kool aid longer to get more vibrant colors. If you want to have more pastel eggs, do not leave them in as long.
It is super easy to try all sorts of different colors and styles!
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.
