– 1 1/2 dozen hard boiled eggs, cooled
1. Empty contents of cherry drink mix envelopes into 6- to 8-oz. container. Add 2 Tbsp. water; stir until mixes are completely dissolved. Repeat in 3 additional containers with remaining drink mixes and water.
2. Place eggs on cooling rack in sink; rinse with tap water.
3. Spoon Kool-Aid mixtures, 1 at a time, over wet eggs to create tie-dye patterns.

How to make solid-colored Easter eggs:
Pour Contents Of 1 Envelope Of Each Flavor Kool-Aid Drink Mix Into Separate 10- To-12 Oz. Container. Add 2/3 Cup Water To Each; Stir To Dissolve Drink Mix. Use Spoon To Place 1 Hard-Cooked Egg In Each Cup, Keeping Egg Submerged Until Desired Color Is Reached. Continue With Remaining Eggs. Let Dry As Directed In Recipe.
Place Assorted Rubber Bands Around Hard-Cooked Eggs Before Dipping In Cups Of Kool-Aid Mixtures; Let Dry Completely Before Removing Rubber Bands. For A Two-Tone Effect, Dip The Dry Colored Eggs Again In A Lighter-Colored Prepared Kool-Aid.
Experiment With Other Kool-Aid Flavors For Different Color Patterns. Use Black Cherry, Strawberry Or Tropical Punch For Red; Mango Or Peach Mango For Orange; Or Lemon-Lime Or Piña For Yellow.
