Just randomly popped in to the pinterest site and saw this about coloring eggs with Kool-Aid....I did not know you could do that.

In the 90s, I dyed my hair with Kool-Aid. Last year, I dyed yarn with Kool-Aid. And this year, we're dyeing Easter eggs with Kool-Aid. I mean, why not? It smells fruity and awesome. It makes me nostalgic for hot summer days at the pool. Time to make some Kool-Eggs.
After your eggs are ready to go, it's time to find some small containers and get your Kool-Aid packets ready to go.
is really all you need, because Kool-Aid has citric acid in it. No need
for vinegar! Add one packet of Kool-Aid to 2/3 cup of water and stir.
That's it. I used both lukewarm and cold water and it didn't really make
a difference with how our eggs turned out. Keep in mind that Kool-Aid
powder is pretty messy, so you should do all of the mixing over your
sink to prevent your counter tops from turning different colors the next
time you wipe them off. (Not that this happened to me or anything.)
don't have to leave the eggs in the dye cups very long before you'll
see them become quite brightly colored. The eggs will smell fruity at
first but after they dry, they smell and taste like normal hard-boiled
will warn you about a couple of colors/flavors that had less than
desirable results. Lemonade on its own comes out too light (as does the
Pink Lemonade) and Grape will quickly turn dark gray-ish. I remedied
this by mixing things up a bit. To get a nice yellow, use one packet of
Lemonade mixed with a quarter to half packet of Orange. To get light
pink, use one packet of Pink Lemonade and add a little bit of Cherry or
Strawberry. To turn the gray/brown Grape egg into an indigo color, add
some Berry Blue to the mix.
