Wax Color Egg

You and your kids can make multi-colored Easter eggs with these simple steps, and a little wax.

Wax CrayonMaterials:
  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Egg dye
  • Wax Crayon

Patterns are drawn on the egg with wax, which then protects the covered areas from the dye that is applied. By repeating this process with different colors of dye, a multi-colored pattern is built up. Finally, the wax is removed to reveal the colors that were covered up at each stage. The result is beautiful.
