Dying Easter Eggs
We recently enjoyed dying Easter eggs with our cousins. This is one of my kids favorite Easter activities, and one of mine as well! The kids love dunking the eggs in bright dyes and getting creative with crayons and rubber bands. This year we tried making Melted Crayon Easter Eggs, and they turned out great!
One of the cousins got creative with rubber bands and made this little egg holder. Kaleb loved it and used it to dip all his eggs. The tail was prefect for keeping his fingers out of the dye.
We had boiled and cooled the eggs earlier (for regular egg dying). Ideally, you would sprinkle the crayon shavings on freshly boiled eggs. However, it we ended up rewarming our cooked eggs in boiling water with no problems.
Sprinkle the crayon shavings onto the hot eggs. The egg will melt the crayons and create a beautiful pattern. Make sure you cover work surface or use a paper plate like we did. It can get a little messy.
I love how the melted crayon eggs turned out. We also added some glitter for extra sparkle while the crayon was still warm. You can never have enough sparkle at Easter:)
