The girls found a picture in a hand-me-down craft book.
Instructions on how to make eggs coated with colorful wax. They were, of course, gorgeous.
I would normally shy away from a project like this but....
WE ARE REALLY BORED.
So we shaved the crayons on my nice (on its last leg) pampered chef slicer/grater tool. That's because I can never find the dollar store one that stands up because the kids play this fun game where they put it in a completely new place every single time they unload the dishwasher.
Anyways.....we sprinkled the wax in hot water and let it get all melty. Then we dipped our eggs in it.
Then we realized that the wax stuck to the spoons that we had our eggs on instead of the eggs. Not ideal.
So we tried hand dipping them.
We had mixed success. And it was a total mess. And they looked nothing like the ones in the craft book (do they ever?).
But, on the bright side, it was a total mess and there were crayon shavings everywhere.
