Melted Crayon Eggs – Coloring Easter Eggs

Melted Crayon Eggs is a PERFECT way of coloring easter eggs quickly. In fact its a great way to color a lot of eggs at once. I just love easy crafts! Remember when Little Chef D enjoyed making her Butterfly Melted Crayon Art?  We learned from that experience that grating crayons is a hard and long task if you do it by hand, but the result of melting the crayons is beautiful. We wanted to apply that technique to eggs.

Melted Crayon Eggs - Coloring Easter Eggs


  • Hot hard boiled eggs
  • Variety of crayons
  • Grater
  • Plate


  1. Remove the paper from the crayons and grate onto a plate. Using this type of Grater gave us the quickest results. This needs to be done BEFORE your eggs are done cooking. In order to be successful with this technique you need to have hot eggs. Melted Crayon Eggs from A quick and easy way to decorate eggs! #crayon #eggs #easter #kids
  2. Place your very hot hard boiled eggs back in the egg container. Use tongs so that you do not burn your fingers.
  3. Sprinkle the crayon shavings on the top of each egg. We loved the mixed colors so we didn’t separate them when grating, which actually made that step faster.

  4. Wait and watch the crayon shavings melt and drip down the sides of the egg all the way to the bottom. The wax will pool in the bottom of the egg carton. We did not have a problem with any of the eggs sticking to the carton.

That’s it! Quick and easy. The key is using hot eggs. If you notice the eggs that have more white are the eggs that were cooled off more then the others. If you do not mix ALL the colors together as we did you will get more diverse eggs.
