The kids are super excite about dyeing Easter eggs again this year. Last year I only boiled a dozen eggs for the kids to dye which, at 6 eggs each, they quickly dyed. And then begged for more. The photo above are our eggs from last Easter. The ones on the left we used a white crayon to create a resist before letting them bathe in Kool-Aid.
We used Kool-Aid to dye them and since I found my Kool-Aid stash last week, that’s what we’re using again next week. It’s easy, low-mess, and smells really good. Check out the tutorial I found from Hey Jen Renee.
Check out my Easter egg dyeing Pinterest board for other ideas and method.
I especially like the one where you put rubber bands around the eggs to create a resist (like tie dyeing). If the kids have the patience I think it would look really cool to layer the color. Dye it in a light color like yellow. Add some rubber bands after it dries, then give it a quick dip in green. Pretty right?
