As Easter approaches, it’s time to create colorful eggs!
Instead of the traditional vinegar and dye method, mix things up this year
using shaving cream for a unique marbleized look. The process is safe, easy, and perfect for
kids of all ages!
For this project you will need hard boiled eggs, shaving
cream (foam not gel), food coloring, containers (bowls, muffins tins, and
baking sheets work well), toothpicks or a spoon, and paper towels. Gloves are useful if you want to avoid
staining your fingers. Before we start
coloring, the eggs need to be fully cooled down and dry.
Start by spreading out shaving cream in the container of
your choice. Keep it about 1 inch deep
so there is plenty of room to dip and roll your eggs.
Add sporadic drops of food coloring in 2-3 different
colors. Using a toothpick or spoon,
swirl the colors around in the shaving cream to create a marble pattern you
Next place an egg into the shaving cream, and roll through
the swirled colors until it is fully coated with shaving cream. Set the egg aside and let the shaving cream
dry for 15-20 minutes. The longer you
wait, the more vibrant the colors will be.
Once done, wipe any excess shaving cream off with a paper towel, and
your masterpiece is done!
Tips & Tricks:
- Use multiple bowls or muffin cups to create different swirled
color combinations to dip eggs into.
- Don’t have shaving cream?
You can achieve the same effects using whipped cream.
- Soaking eggs in vinegar for 2-3 minutes prior to dying them
will make the colors more pronounced.
You’re now ready to
WOW with your beautiful eggs in Easter
baskets, egg hunts, and family dinners. Grab a cute tote bin for a new take on a gift basket - they're the perfect size and can be reused throughout the home.
