Shaving Cream & Food Coloring Easter Eggs {Repost}

I saw a package of all white fake Eater eggs at Walmart several weeks ago, and thought I needed them (white is becoming my favorite color these days), but resisted buying them because I really didn't know what to do with them.   Until... just the other day I somehow got thinking about the eggs again, and how the shaving cream and food coloring art activity we've done before could be the perfect match for the eggs!

I picked up a package (they were under $2 for a dozen) of the eggs, and my four-year-old and I decided to give it a try.  I wasn't sure if the food coloring would stick to the eggs (they aren't plastic, they're more papery than plastic) but it totally did.  We even tried it on one of our real chicken eggs, and it worked on that as well!

I have all the instructions here for doing the shaving cream and food coloring.  Basically, you'll spread a layer of shaving cream in a small cookie tray, drop drops of food coloring in the shaving cream, swirl the colors slightly with a popsicle stick, and then roll, or kind of stamp each part the egg in the colorful shaving cream.  When we do the shaving cream and food coloring art with paper, we usually scrape the excess shaving cream off with a popsicle stick, but for the eggs, we just wiped it off gently with a paper towel.

Like I mentioned, we had a dozen of these eggs, and they went way too quickly.  It's so much fun experimenting with the different colors on each egg.  And our hands were as colorful as the Easter eggs when we were done.  But all part of the fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you found a little something worth your time.

  11. Hello,
    thank you very much for the inspiration! My older one always wants to do handcraft and as Eastern is not that far away he might really be into this. Sometimes I also just run out of ideas and I'm happy about blogs like yours that give me some :)
    I have a 6 months old girl at home who also needs a lot of attention especially as I'm still breast feeding. However my husband and I decided on introducing her to formula and also slowly to solids and I'm a little bit nervous and excited at the same time. She is allergic to cow milk, this is what we did find out when we wanted to introduce formula for the first time. Now we did find a supposed to be really good organic goat milk formula from I hope it will work out this time as I want to start working part time in April.
    But first I hope you have a beautiful March and Happy Easter already :)

  12. Very interesting For shaving cream and Easter egg food I like very much.
