There are many different ways to dye eggs. One new way to dye your eggs this Easter holiday or for the spring is with crayons!
All you will need are white eggs, tongs, crayons and an empty egg carton. First, you must hard-boil the white eggs. After the eggs are finished boiling, remove them from the pot with the tongs. Dry them off and let them rest in the empty egg carton.
While they are still a little warm, color the eggs with the tips of crayon. To make it easier, remove the paper from the the crayons and color the eggs with the sides of the crayon.
In order to create a speckled effect like the purple egg in the picture, grate the crayon and sprinkle them crayon shavings on top.
These waxy eggs are very slippery, so be careful not to drop them as you are turning them around!
Once you have finished coloring them, let the eggs dry for about an hour.
