Crayon Easter Eggs
I remember doing this one as a kid. It is fun for the little ones to create their own designs by coloring on hard boiled eggs before dipping them in the dye. It is a nice way to add some jazz to the traditional egg dying.
All you need is hardboiled eggs, crayons, vinegar and food coloring. Four easy steps and your little one will have beautiful Easter eggs.
- Hard boil white eggs and let them cool
- Color the eggs with crayons
- Make the egg dye by combining ½ cup of warm water, 2 tablespoons of white vinegar and food coloring
- Dip the eggs in the dye and let them sit for one minute (or more if you would like a darker color)
- Take the eggs out and let them dry

- Hard-boil white eggs
- Color them with the crayons’ tips or remove the paper coverings and use the crayons’ sides. For a speckled effect, grate a crayon and sprinkle the bits over the eggs
- When you’re done coloring, leave them to dry for about an hour
These are funky, fun looking eggs to give your Easter basket some punch! It looks so easy to do. You will need a colander/strainer, hard-boiled white eggs, white vinegar, and food colouring.
- Place several hard-boiled eggs in a colander or strainer in the kitchen sink and splash them with the vinegar
- Drip yellow food coloring on the eggs
- Gently agitate the colander or strainer for a few seconds to help the color spread. Let the color set on the eggs for 30 seconds
- Repeat steps 2 and 3 with up to two allowing each to set for 30 seconds
- After the last color has set, give the eggs a light rinse with water and let them drain for a minute or two. Air-dry them on paper towels
