Koolaid + Silk = Happiness

For Christmas each of the kids got a white play silk and a package of Koolaid. Recently we all dyed our silks. This is how we did it.

Soak ’em in hot water.

Mix up Koolaid in one quart jars and place in pot of simmering water.

Dip sections of silks into colors and let simmer about five minutes. We had to move them once to get all the sections colored.

When all the color is used up, the Koolaid looks like this:

Hang to dry. (Silks are so thin, this takes almost no time, even in the cold of winter)

The kids all love thier silks, and now that we’ve got the hang of it, I think we will be doing it more often.

Even V is impressed.
