My first attempt at Kool Aid dying
Well, I took Kool Aid inventory yesterday and last night after dinner I enlisted the help of my 14 yo dd to try my hand at a little dying. Overall, I'm not too disappointed in the results, but I was hoping for a little more color saturation than what I ended up with and a little less color streaking. I will have to do a little more experimenting next time to see if I can get it closer to what I wanted. But I think this will make a cute pair of socks of my almost 3 yo dd!

I used the following Flavor Aid flavors: orange, lemonade and tropical punch. I also used regular Kool Aid flavors of grape and arctic green apple. Thanks for the compliments!
