Learn how to marble Easter eggs with Kool-Aid. This is an easy and lovely egg decorating technique for kids and adults alike.

Updated March 2022

We’ve dyed Easter eggs with Kool-Aid before, when we did egg frame drawing. And then, we took the Kool-Aid a step further and used it to marble Easter eggs!

We just love how these eggs look! Fancy and subtle at the same time.

This is an easy and quick method – so give it a try today if you have yet to dye your eggs!

How to Marble Easter Eggs

MATERIALS

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Prepare the egg dye

    Open the Kool-Aid packages and add the powder to whatever bowls or cups you are using to dye the eggs. Next, pour hot water over the Kool-Aid powder and add 1-2 tablespoons of distilled white vinegar per color. Then, add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in each color dye and stir well.

  2. Add eggs to dye

    Add eggs to each bowl and let them sit for a bit.

    We found it helpful to stir or whisk the oil and Kool-Aid mixture each time we were about to add an egg. Otherwise, the oil pooled into the center and we ended up with a very large white spot.

    The darker colors, such as red, worked their magic quickly. The paler colors like pink and yellow took longer to dye the eggs.

  3. Remove eggs and let dry

    We found that putting the eggs in an egg carton worked well to allow them to dry.

Aren’t the marbled Easter eggs beautiful?

Some have little (or big) dots of white where the oil sat on the surface of the water and connected with the eggs while some have more of a swirled effect.

As you can see, our Kool-Aid packets yielded a lot of reds, pinks, and browns (the brown was actually due to accidentally mixing some green powder with some red powder – oops!).

We love this mix, but next time would probably aim for some blues, greens, and purples, too.
