Shaving Cream Easter Eggs

My day job is teaching children with a variety of special needs. I am always on the hunt for fun, safe and simple projects that they can all be included in.

I recently saw a video on Facebook, showing a tutorial dying Easter eggs with food coloring and shaving cream. Immediately, I knew this was the perfect project for my students.

The kids had fun rolling the eggs through the shaving cream and the end results were really pretty. The pastel marbled eggs look stunning. If you are looking to dye eggs this Easter weekend, then I would recommend this method. It is messy, but clean up is quick and the overall process is great for many age levels.

I was really impressed with the different looks we achieved and my favorite was the galaxy looking egg pictured above. This activity was the perfect send off for spring break. I am so excited to have the next week off.
