Easter is coming up and we have thinking about new and creative ways to dye Easter eggs. We have played with shaving cream a lot in the past, like with these 10 Shaving Cream Activities for Kids. I thought we would revisit shaving cream and add some food coloring and use that to dye our eggs. I think the results are quite eye-catching, don't you think? Shaving Cream Easter Eggs are easy to make with kids. Prepare for some messy fun!

When you decorate Easter eggs with your child using shaving cream and food coloring, a mess is bound to happen. So accept that fact and just have fun!
How to make marbled Easter eggs with shaving cream
Spray each cup of a muffin pan with shaving cream.
Add a few drops of food coloring to each cup of shaving cream. You can try different color combinations or two or three colors.
Swirl the colors together with a toothpick to get a marbled effect.
Gently place an egg in the shaving cream and use a spoon to turn the egg over to get it fully coated with the colors.
Remove the egg from the cup with a spoon and place it on a tray for 1 hour so the colors can set.
Wipe off the excess shaving cream with a paper towel.
Underneath all that shaving creamed with be a beautifully dyed egg!
Each one is unique!
