Tips for Decorating Easter Eggs with Crayons

Before you just jump in and get to decorating, we have some tips, tricks, and answers to our most asked questions for you.

How long do you boil eggs for dyeing Easter eggs?

When boiling eggs for decorating you will want to boil them for 10 to 12 minutes. Usually the next step is prior to decorating Easter eggs, but for this craft, you will want to transfer your eggs (using a slotted spoon) straight to the egg carton for decorating.

Can you color eggs with crayons?

Yes, you can! There are so many different ways to color Easter eggs with from resisting painting to the melted crayon idea shared here 🙂

Is it safe to use crayons on eggs?

Crayons are generally non-toxic and just made from wax and coloring. Definitely check the brand of crayons that you are using prior to use and do not color any eggs with crayons that may have cracked during boil just to be on the safe side.

If you are worried about this search for crayons made from natural wax such as beeswax, soy wax, and/or carnauba wax.

Can you use regular crayons on Easter eggs?

Yes, you can, however, personal preference also will play into this. On our crayons, we used Crayola and RoseArt. Both crayons melted and decorated our Easter eggs beautifully. Crayola did apply a tad smoother to the egg, however, RoseArt stuck better to the eggs and was not as smudgeable.
