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 try these cool flashlights instead.  My girls love 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!

  • The heat from the eggs causes the crayons to melt, creating beautiful effects as kids draw.
