Dyed Easter Deviled Eggs
Easter Fun In The Snow
Minion Easter Egg Idea
Graphic from www.apumpkinandaprincess.com.
Dip hard boiled egg in blue dye first (only half) to desired strength of blue color for pants – when dry do the same with the other half but in yellow. When dry glue on googly eyes like shown in examples. Use sharpie marker to create smiles and rings to top and bottom of eyes. Pictured they used black yarn to create band for glasses but you could just finish with sharpie marker. Very cool and the kids will love their new companions.
Easter Egg Coloring With Kool Aid
2 env. (0.13 to 0.16 oz. each) KOOL-AID Unsweetened Drink Mix, any red color (try Cherry, Black Cherry, Strawberry or Tropical Punch flavor)
2 env. (0.14 oz. to 0.15 oz. each) KOOL-AID Unsweetened Drink Mix, any orange color (try Orange, Mango or Peach Mango flavor)
2 env. (0.13 oz. to 0.23 oz. each) KOOL-AID Unsweetened Drink Mix, any yellow or green color (try Lemonade, Piña or Lemon-Lime flavor)
2 env. (0.22 oz. each) KOOL-AID Unsweetened Drink Mix, any blue color (try Mixed Berry or Ice Blue Raspberry Lemonade flavor)
1/2 cup water, divided
1-1/2 doz. hard-cooked eggs, cooled
MIX contents of 2 (same-flavored) KOOL-AID envelopes with 2 Tbsp. water in 6- to 8-oz. container; stir to dissolve drink mixes. Repeat in 3 separate containers with remaining KOOL-AID envelopes.
PLACE eggs on cooling rack in sink; rinse eggs with tap water.
SPOON KOOL-AID mixtures, 1 at a time, over wet eggs to create tie-dye patterns. Repeat with remaining eggs.
POUR a little tap water over each egg to set colors. Use tongs to transfer eggs to paper towel-covered baking sheet to dry. Rinse sink immediately as needed.
How to Make Solid-Colored Easter Eggs
Pour contents of 1 envelope of each KOOL-AID color into separate 10- to-12 oz. container. Add 2/3 cup water to each; stir to dissolve drink mix. Use spoon to place 1 hard-cooked egg in each cup, keeping egg submerged until desired color is reached. Continue with remaining eggs. Let dry as directed above.
Place assorted rubber bands around hard-cooked eggs before dipping in cups of KOOL-AID mixtures; let dry completely before removing rubber bands. For a two-tone effect, dip the dry colored eggs again in a lighter-colored prepared KOOL-AID.
Experiment with other KOOL-AID flavors for different color patterns.
