So I had seen around an idea of dyeing Easter eggs with Kool-Aid packets. Of course I had to figure out how to do that with the crock. My kids and I had a wonderful time pretending we were scientists, making our Kool-Aid concoctions of color trying to get the color perfect. You may ask, how is it better to do it in the crock, vs boiling water, and putting the dye in individual cups, to dip into. It may not, but when you do it that way, it is very concentrated, and you cannot change the colors real well. The way I did it, we could make one color and then when we were done dipping that color, we added another shade of Kool-Aid to the water mix, and the children had a blast changing from one to another.
