There are lots of store bought kits out there to help kids and adults alike dye their Easter eggs, and the results are beautiful. This year, I felt like doing something a little different with materials I already had. As a kid I had countless crayons--broken ones and sharp new ones in what seemed like every color of the rainbow--which have become my new medium for Easter egg decorations. The wax melts beautifully, there are hundreds of colors, and it's mess free with great results.
Step 1: Materials
- Bottle Caps (1 for each Egg Decorator)
- Kitchen Pot
- Dish Towel
Step 2: Boil Your Eggs
Boiling is a key step because it heats your eggs up. The crayons will only melt onto the eggs if each egg is hot.
Step 3: Drying
NOTE: I like to remove the eggs with a spoon instead of draining the eggs so that I can reuse the water for other things like watering my plants once it's cooled.
