Shaving Cream Easter Eggs

Creative Wednesdays

This is one of the easiest ways to make beautiful Easter eggs. Although food coloring is not toxic and won’t hurt the children, it will make clean up easier if you protect the work surface, have plenty of paper towels available, have a garbage bag close by, and have the kids wear rubber gloves while dying the eggs. We didn’t wear rubber gloves so took quite awhile to wash our hands after dying the eggs. 

You Will Need:

Disposable Baking Tin
Rubber Gloves
Hard Boiled White Eggs
Shaving Cream
Food Coloring
White Vinegar
Paper Towels
Plastic Spoons or Popsicle Sticks
Garbage Bag

What to Do:

1. To prepare to color these eggs, protect the work surface, have kids wear smocks, and use rubber gloves to keep food coloring from staining the work surface, clothing, and hands. Clean hard boiled with white vinegar to remove any impurities on the shells to help the color to adhere better.

2. Fill baking tin with about one-inch of shaving cream and smooth it to make it level with platic spoon.

3. Allow the kids to add drops of food coloring to the shaving cream. Have them gently mix the colors. Don’t over mix the different colors or it will turn gray.

4. Wearing disposable gloves allow the kids to roll one egg at a time in the colorful shaving cream. Place the eggs on a paper towel.

5. Use paper towels to wipe off the shaving cream, then immediately throw out the used paper towels to keep from making a mess. Display the eggs.
