This is the time of year for Easter Egg Dyeing. While this isn’t really a favorite on my list due to the amount of effort that goes into this kind of activity on my part, I always end up doing them because my children have so much fun!
Last year besides the traditional water, vinegar, and dye tablets method, we were introduced to a new method of Easter egg dying that we had not yet tried.
Easter Egg Dyeing with Shaving Cream
You can make some awesome marbleized looking Easter Eggs quickly and easily with a small mess and a small amount of money!
- Cookie sheet
- Food coloring
- Shaving cream
- Paper plate
- Hard Boiled Eggs
- Sandwich baggies (or rubber gloves)
- Using white shaving cream, spread it out across the surface of a cookie sheet.
- Dribble food coloring across the top surface of the shaving cream.
- Use toothpicks to swirl the colors around in the shaving cream.
- Take your dried and cooled hard boiled egg, and roll it around in the cream. (You can use sandwich baggies as gloves to keep finger prints off the egg as well as to keep the coloring from getting on your hands.)
- Place colored eggs on a paper plate to allow them to dry for about five minutes.
- Wipe off shaving cream and rinse with water.
What are your Easter egg dyeing traditions? Do you have an unusual egg dyeing method to share?
