Dyeing Easter Eggs with Wax Crayons

Last Easter we painted eggs with the kids from our play group. We decided to try a new technique from the Artful Parent, which uses wax crayons and food colouring.

It was so much fun! The kids got to do almost everything by themselves, so it was much better than the traditional way of dyeing eggs. They created fun patterns and interesting drawings, then dipped the eggs in a bit of food colouring, water (3/4) and vinegar (1/4).
