Shaving Cream Easter Eggs

Excuse the mess…my children are having fun!

It works! The whole shaving cream dyeing Easter Egg thing.

I was skeptical at first, but Kaitlyn wanted to try them this year, so we loaded up on eggs and a couple of bottles of shaving cream and regular egg dye for those of us who didn’t want to do the shaving cream thing.

It’s easy. Messy, but easy. But messy is fun, right? We aren’t afraid of messy.

First things first, hard boil the eggs. I piled 5 dozen eggs in a huge pot and boiled them for 15 minutes.  On a smaller scale a dozen will fit nicely in a small soup pot.  Cool the eggs completely before dyeing.

Simply fill muffin tins, or small plastic cups with shaving cream.

Add your dye color of choice. We’ve done natural coloring too, but we went with good old food dye for eggs this year. Swirl the coloring a bit.

Dip the cooled eggs in the colored shaving cream. Let sit for about 5 minutes.

Rinse under water and set aside to dry and set.

 

 

Then make pretty Easter Baskets!
