Shaving Cream Easter Eggs

Monday, April 6, 2020

Dear future kids,
You will never experience dying eggs the old fashioned way because your mom tried this is and it was 39487 times easier. LOL

No, but for real. I have been trying to keep everything 'normal' for my little Kinder babies. One thing I do every year is boil a million eggs (normally last minute and am up until 2AM) and let them dye them at school. It is ridiculous every year, but I love the memories. I saw this online and wanted to try it so I figured why not try it while distant teaching/learning?

Materials: eggs, water, vinegar (I didn't use it though), food coloring, shaving cream
Mess Factor: not much mess (tip: use baking soda to remove food coloring off hands)

Boil eggs. I have read to soak in vinegar for 20 minutes, but I honestly forgot and it still worked.

Put shaving cream in a tray, bowl, cup cake tin, or on a plate like I did. Add some food coloring of choice.

Roll your eggs in it. Set out on a paper towel or plate for 10-20 minutes and then wipe off the shaving cream...and DONE! So simple. The longer you leave it on, the brighter the colors turn out. 
Happy crafting!
