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!
- Hardboiled Eggs (we used 8 eggs)
- Assorted Kool-Aid Packets (we used 4 flavors)
- Glass Cups/Jars (we used 4 recycled mason jars)
- Paper Towels & Plates for drying
- What color will the egg be based upon the color of the powder?
- What color will the egg be based upon the color of the liquid? (Discussion: Did the Hypothesis Change or stay the same? Why?)
- How long will it take to dye the egg?
- What will happen if we leave the second egg in for twice as long?
