Melted Crayon Easter Eggs – Craft

Source: Family Fun Magazine

These Easter eggs are FUN to make with your kids or classroom. And what a perfect use for those broken, about to be thrown away crayons!

You will need:

  • Eggs (white)
  • Empty egg carton
  • Tongs or a large slotted spoon
  • Crayons
  • Paper towels

Instructions

  1. Hard-boil white eggs. Remove them from the hot water with tongs or a slotted spoon, pat them dry with a paper towel, and rest them in an empty egg carton or on plastic bottle caps (an adult’s job).
  2.  Moving quickly while the eggs are still warm enough to melt the crayon wax, color them with the crayons’ tips or remove the paper coverings and use the crayons’ sides. For a speckled effect, grate a crayon and sprinkle the bits over the eggs. The waxy eggs will become very slippery, so take care when turning them to color the underside.

When you are done coloring, place them in the empty egg carton and let them dry for about 30 minutes. Refrigerate until ready to use.
