Shaving Cream Egg Dye

Written by Jen Sill

Ready for Easter?  Still need a fun, maybe different Easter egg dye project?  I’ve got a great one for you!

Supplies:

  • CHEAP white shaving cream (a little goes a long way.  I did a dozen with less than a can.)
  • Food Coloring
  • Ziplock baggies
  • Eggs
    • Make sure they’re already boiled and cooled.  (Don’t let them melt the shaving cream.)

 

What you do:

  • Squirt the shaving cream in the Ziplock.
  • Drop in the egg
  • Drop in a couple drops of food coloring (it works nicely if you drop the coloring right on the egg).

Swirl the egg around inside the bag.

Drop the egg onto a cookie sheet or muffin tin (it is best if some of the shaving cream comes off on the egg).

Wait 5 minutes.

Wipe the shaving cream off.

You can also squirt the shaving cream on a cookie sheet, drop some food coloring and roll the egg around on the sheet.  With this process, you should also wait 5 minutes for the dye to ‘set’ before wiping the egg down.

 

Happy Easter!
