Waxing Eggs

A fun new way to color eggs. Waxing eggs was renamed color explosion in our house today. We had already gone for a walk, played football and attempted to fly a kite (wind was not steady enough), but we needed something to do before someone begged to watch Spiderman for the 100th time. I got this idea from “Paas” of course.


Hard boil the eggs.

Using a pencil sharpener or small knife shave crayons into small thin shavings.

Lightly sprinkle hot eggs with different color wax shavings. Let the explosion come alive as it melts!

You could probably dye them the next day and that would add some extra fun.

TIP: Eggs must be hot for the wax to melt properly.  

KID TIP: Get them shaving the crayons well before the eggs are ready! This part is not quick.
