Egg Decorating Ideas

I was perusing around the other day looking for some cool egg decorating ideas and found some pretty good ones. This was my favorite: it looks really cool and uses a supply that most families have laying around their house - Crayons.

Boil the eggs in a mixture of water and vinegar (about 1 1/2 tablespoons of vinegar for every cup of water) for 10 minutes, then turn off the heat.
Carefully remove a hot egg (parents only) and let it cool for about 10 minutes. (Leave the others in the water until you're almost ready to decorate them, so they stay warm.)
Holding the egg on a paper towel, draw on the shell with the crayons. To avoid smudging your design when turning the egg, carefully lift it from the paper towel, turn it, then set it back down. Let the design set for about 30 minutes.
Here are a few more fun ideas from the site I was on. Get creative and have fun!
