Easter is less that a week away and if you have little ones at home you’ll be hunting eggs soon! Sweet T and I enjoyed making speckled Easter eggs with Kool Aid together. Here’s how we did it.

Make Speckled Easter Eggs with Kool Aid

You will need:

2 envelopes Kool-Aid Unsweetened Drink Mix, any red color (Try Cherry, Black Cherry, Strawberry or Tropical Punch flavor)
1 envelope Kool-Aid Unsweetened Drink Mix, any orange color (Try Orange, Mango or Peach Mango flavor)
1 envelope Kool-Aid Unsweetened Drink Mix, any yellow or green color (try Lemonade, Piña or Lemon-Lime flavor)

Directions

Empty content of each envelope into separate containers. I used glass drinking tumblers which worked great! Add 2/3 cup water to each glass and stir well.

Add a wet egg to each tumbler and allow to sit for 2-3 minutes. (rinse each egg under the tap before placing in the glass. This is the key to making speckled eggs with Kool-Aid. If you want a solid finish instead, place the egg in dry.)

Place egg on an old towel or cloth napkin that you don’t mind getting stained to dry. Do not rinse the eggs before placing on towel. If you rinse the eggs first, they will dry solid and we want to make speckled Easter eggs.

Allow eggs to dry completely before touching. They will speckle as they dry.

* To get an egg with that natural-looking brown color like the one picture above, add about 1/2 tsp of grape Kool-Aid to any red color Kool-Aid and follow the directions above or try a natural egg dye set.
