BEST DYE FOR EASTER EGGS: KOOL-AID!
As the giant Kool-Aid pitcher spokesman says, “Oh, Yeah!” Dip into an old-school drink powder for the BEST Easter eggs yet. You don’t need anything else but the Kool-Aid powder and water. Simply pour each envelope of the powder into a cup that’s one-half full of water, then stir to dissolve. Submerge your egg into the cup until it comes out the hue you want. The best shades come from Berry Blue, Strawberry and Lemon-Lime. Go crazy and mix ‘em up to create new colors.
Your kids can also have fun creating tie-dye Easter eggs with Kool-Aid. Kraft’s “Twist That Dish” has all the info. Get it at myfoodandfamily.com.
