Ingredients
  

  • Assorted 6g packets of unsweetened Kool-Aid powdered drink mix
  • Eggs washed well (any oil residue on eggs will prevent color from adhering)
  • Glass cups or clear plastic disposable cups
  • Water
  • Vinegar
  • Spoons
  • Empty egg carton or baking rack for drying eggs

Instructions
 

  • In one glass per color, mix entire packet of Kool-Aid with 2/3 cup cold water. Stir until dissolved then add in 1 Tbsp vinegar.
  • Allow egg to soak for 5-10 minutes, checking periodically until you get the color intensity you want.
  • Use spoon to remove from solution, and allow to dry on wire rack.

Notes

There are over 80 flavors of Kool-Aid, so try experimenting with the colors yourself. Here are just a few of my results:
Cherry: bright red
Watermelon Cherry: light pink (color will deepen the longer left in mixture, up to 10 minutes)
Orange: bright orange (color will deepen the longer left in mixture, up to 10 minutes)
Lemonade: (barely there) pale yellow. Best for using to mix colors.
Grape: dark grey (add only half the flavor packet to get a purple color)
Berry Blue/Ice Blue: robin's egg blue color Lemonade + Berry Blue/Ice Blue (equal amounts): teal (color will deepen the longer left in mixture, up to 10 minutes)
Cherry + Lemonade: peach (color will deepen the longer left in mixture, up to 10 minutes)
Cherry + Grape: rusty brow

    For years I have bought those “store” coloring aids. And, I have NEVER gotten good colors from any of them! I am filing this for next year and I am anxious to see the results. Thanks.
