Pasta Dyed with Kool-Aid

Go here for directions on an easy way to dye dry pasta with Koolaid.  The colors turned out really good and they smell awesome!
From left to right I used: Berry Blue, Orange, Lemon-Lime, Cherry (or maybe it was Black Cherry-I don't remember), Peach Mango, and Grape (yes, it does look more black than purple.)

I made up the pasta so we could make rainbows for Saint Patrick's Day like this:

But instead, the girls insisted on making "rainbow caves" like this:

I really struggled between being frustrated that they weren't following directions but not wanting to squash their creativity.  Sigh.
