Easter is one of our favorite holidays to decorate for. There are so many fun Easter activities we can do together as a family. The pastel colors look great around our house as we put up bunnies, chicks, and eggs!

Speaking of eggs, we have tried so many ways of dyeing Easter eggs. This year, we decided to try something new. With so many crayons around our home, it was easy to do this craft.

Melted Crayon Easter Eggs Activity

This Easter activity for kids takes out the need for a messy dye kit and that less than pleasant smell of vinegar. The only things you really need are crayons and eggs! How much easier can it get?!

A word of caution here…you will be dealing with very hot eggs. Make sure your kids have adult supervision at all times so they stay safe.

How to Make Melted Crayon Easter Eggs

Supplies:

  • Crayons 
  • Salad Tongs 
  • Toilet paper rolls 

Directions:

Hard boil the eggs. Ours took about 15-20 minutes in a pot of water on the stove.

While eggs are boiling, cut toilet paper rolls into smaller pieces as to hold the eggs while decorating. We used little egg holders we had on hand, but the cardboard tubes work great.

As soon as eggs are done boiling, grab the tongs and move the eggs to place them on the paper roll holders. Do not cool them off in cold water.

Remember: the eggs will be extremely hot! You’ll want to help smaller children.

Begin drawing your design on the egg with the crayons. Try a variety of styles, like blending colors, drawing flowers or bunnies, or doing zig zags and dots. You can see the crayon running down the egg as it melts!

Let eggs cool completely after decorating before removing from the egg holder.

That’s it! These Melted Crayon Easter Eggs activity offer a mess-free alternative to egg dyeing. Plus, your kids can get really creative using an egg as the easel for their drawings and creations.
