This year we are exploring alternatives to the traditional egg dying kits. This is our first Egg-periment of the week.   I hope  you enjoy this as much as we did.

During my quest for ideas, I saw where Hey Jen Renee dyed eggs using Kool-Aid packets.  I thought this was fantastic and I knew my kids would agree. However, I’m always trying to make the most of our activities and thought this would make a fantastic Egg-periment for my kiddo’s as well.

Note:  Don’t waste that dye! Afterwards, we finished mixing the Kool-Aid as usual!

Easter Egg Dye Alternatives

 

Materials:

  • Hardboiled Eggs (we used 8 eggs)
  • Assorted Kool-Aid Packets (we used 4 flavors)
  • Glass Cups/Jars (we used 4 recycled mason jars)
  • Water
  • Spoons
  • Paper Towels & Plates for drying
  • Pen/Pencil
  • Paper

 

Hypothesis Questions:

  1. What color will the egg be based upon the color of the powder?
  2. What color will the egg be based upon the color of the liquid? (Discussion: Did the Hypothesis Change or stay the same?  Why?)
  3. How long will it take to dye the egg?
  4. What will happen if we leave the second egg in for twice as long?
