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!

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!
