but I forgot to buy the necessary supplies so we decided to use crayons to decorate our Easter Eggs this year. It was actually really cool. We used hot eggs-right out of the boiling water and the crayon wax melted onto the eggs quite beautifully. Plus the kids got to be much more creative than just holding their egg in different colored water. We got a Star Wars Jawa Egg and a Chick Hatching/Princess Leia Angry Bird Egg.
