It’s really simple to dye Easter eggs with Kool-Aid! Simply follow these easy instructions and tips, and you’ll be done in no time!

What’s in Kool-Aid that makes it easy to dye Easter eggs?

Kool-Aid contains two key ingredients that make it perfect for dyeing Easter eggs:

Food coloring – This is what actually dyes the eggs.
Citric Acid – This helps the food coloring to attach to the eggshell.

No, you don’t need vinegar! The acid in the Kool-Aid is enough to help the food coloring dye the eggs.
