Two memories come to mind when I think of Kool Aid. Memory #1: Some person dressed as a pitcher of Kool Aid with really short arms, breaking through a wall to bring some kids a glass of Kool Aid. Memory #2: The slogan “only 1 cup of sugar” needed “half the amount of sugar in a soda!”. My children don’t have memories of Kool Aid because it is one of the many items I choose not to give them! Good news, they have turned out just fine without it! Don’t be too impressed because I did allow sugar in other forms. I wanted to try this pin because you do not have to use stinky vinegar. My son came in and asked me “why does the kitchen smell like fruit snacks?”. The kitchen smelled very fruity which was nice. However, be careful as the colored water will stain anything it comes into contact with. And it is almost impossible to get out. Thanks to Rindy Mae for this awesome pin!
Pour one packet of Kool Aid into a bowl with 2/3 cups warm water. Dissolve the Kool Aid and you are now ready to dip and color your eggs. Be careful with the darker colors, it doesn’t take much time for them to grab the color and become super dark. The yellow egg turned out a little spotty, but that did not bother me. I got 3 packets of Kool Aid for $1, can’t beat that price!
I’d have to say that using this method was really “Kool”……This Pin ROCKS!
