I have to tell you a secret that may get me banned from San Francisco, where I live.

Promise you won't tell anyone? OK, well, I am not a fan of tie-dye. There I said it. Oh, I feel so liberated. I've never really liked tie-dye on clothing, it's just too hippy-dippy for me, not my aesthetic at all. But, I just discovered that tie-dye looks delightful on, off all things, Easter eggs. Tie-dye Easter eggs are adorable and a great option for decorating eggs with the kids. Yay! Maybe I won't get banned from San Francisco after all, now that I've embraced tie-dye in at least one way.

These instructions were sent to me by Erika Katz's at Bonding Over Beauty and I can't wait to try them out.

Tie-Dye Easter Eggs

You will need:

  • 2 envelopes KOOL-AID Unsweetened Soft Drink Mix, any red color (try Cherry, Black Cherry, Strawberry or Tropical Punch flavor)
  • 2 envelopes KOOL-AID Unsweetened Soft Drink Mix, any orange color (try Orange, Mango or Peach flavor)
  • 2 envelopes KOOL-AID Unsweetened Soft Drink Mix, any yellow or green color (try Lemonade, Piña or Lemon-Lime flavor)
  • 2 envelopes   KOOL-AID Unsweetened Soft Drink Mix, any blue color (try Mixed Berry or Ice Blue Raspberry Lemonade flavor)
  • Two Dozen White Eggs


Mix contents of 2 (same-flavored) KOOL-AID envelopes with 2 Tbsp. water in 6 to 8oz. container; stir to dissolve drink mixes. Repeat in 3 separate containers with remaining KOOL-AID envelopes.

Place 18 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.

Helpful tip:

If you don't want tie-dye hands, wear disposable gloves.
