I have a fun and not so messy way for you and your little ones to color Easter eggs this year! Try using Kool-Aid. I just saw this on the Kraft website and I am so excited to share this with you! This is fast, easy and very inexpensive!

What You Need:

  • a few different colors of Kool-Aid mix (2 of each color) – I suggest red, green, blue, and yellow
  • water
  • hard boiled eggs

OK, are you ready? Like I said this is pretty easy, so you guys will be coloring eggs on no time!

How to Dye Easter Eggs with Kool Aid

1. Empty same color Kool-Aid packets (2) in a small bowl and dissolve in about 2 tablespoons of water. Repeat this step for however many colors you are using.

2. Set hard boiled eggs on a wire rack (I like to use my cookie cooling racks like these) inside your kitchen sink. Rinse eggs with tap water and make sure the eggs are cool before your little one starts to color them.

3. Drop the eggs into the cups with the Kool-aid mixture and allow the egg to sit to soak up the dye.

4. Then carefully remove the eggs from the Kool-aid and let them sit on a wire rack to dry. You can use a Q-tip at this time to draw designs on your eggs before they dry!

It’s that easy! What fun ways do you and your family color Easter eggs?

I like to use this way to dye my eggs than the old dipping method – you can do them easier and they are more vibrant colors.

Please send in pictures as we would love to share them!

  • Hard Boiled Eggs
  • Kool-Aid Packets various colors
  • Water


  • Dissolve a packet of Kool-aid in a cup with 2/3 cup water.  Whisk until the kool-aid is dissolved into the water.
  • Continue this process until you have each color dissolved in water in a separate cup.
  • Place the hard boiled eggs in the cups and allow them to get completely covered with the kool-aid mixture.  Let the eggs soak for 5-10 minutes until the eggs are the color that you prefer.  The longer the eggs sit, the more vibrant the colors will be.
  • Use a spoon to remove the eggs from the cup and place them on a wire rack on top of a baking sheet to cool completely.


As the eggs are drying, you can easily use a Q-tip to create fun designs on the eggs!
If you want multiple colors on one egg, you can spoon the mixture over the portion of the eggs you want dyed while the eggs are on the wire rack to get the pattern/design that you like!
