This egg decorating technique was SO COOL!  As the crayons melted onto the eggs the colors swirled and blended in the most stunning ways!  

I recommend having lots of hard-boiled eggs on hand when you go to give this a try, because the kids will want to decorate a ton of eggs!

Materials
Note:  You can use a blacklight fixture for this activity, or you can give kids these cool flashlights to use instead.  My girls loved using the flashlights!



Preparing the Eggs
  • Begin by placing the desired amount of eggs in a pot and then adding enough water so that the eggs are fully submerged

  • Bring the eggs to a boil, and then remove the pot from the stove and cover it with a lid for 10-15 minutes
  • Carefully remove the eggs from the pot and allow them to cool for a minute or two.
Then, the fun can begin!


Decorating the Eggs

A few tips:  You can find neon crayons online here.  These are the blacklight flashlights that we use for our activities.  If you prefer you could also use a blacklight fixture like this one.
