Glowing Marbleized Egg Dying

The glowing egg dying activity that we shared a couple of years ago has remained one of our most popular posts here on Growing a Jeweled Rose.  It has also remained a favorite activity for my children.  With that in mind I sought to create another fun glowing egg activity.  As for the results, WOW is all that I can say!

Set up for this activity was really easy, and my kids absolutely loved it!  The process and end result was stunningly BEAUTIFUL!  If you are looking for a creative way to dye eggs I would definitely give this one a try.

Materials (affilate links provided)

Note:  If using neon paint you will need a blacklight.  This is the paint we typically use.  Be sure to read our tips & tricks at the bottom of the post for a few helpful pointers.

Method
  • Fill a container with shaving cream.  You want the shaving cream to be deep enough to cover the eggs.
  • Smooth the shaving cream with a spoon, and then add the glowing paint of our choice to the surface.  I added mine in rainbow order

  • Use a spoon or similar to gently swirl the colors like this

  • Let the eggs sit for about 10 minutes, and then turn them over to cover the other side.  Once all sides of the eggs have been saturated in the shaving foam carefully remove the eggs from the foam and place each one on it's own paper towel

  • Carefully wrap the paper towel around each egg and gently squeeze.  Do not wipe or rub, as the eggs need time to dry.  Continue to gently dab the eggs until any access shaving foam is removed

The eggs will be BEAUTIFUL but slightly damp & sticky at first.  After about half an hour they will be completely dry and oh so pretty!!!

This entire process is stunning!  My girls had so much fun, and the set up really couldn't be easier.  Give it a try!  Your kids will surely love it!

A Few Tips:  You can use neon paint or glow in the dark paint for this activity.  If using neon paint you will need a blacklight.  You will see the most intense results under a blacklight.  I highly recommend using one for the best results.  If you do not have a blacklight you can get the one we used for this activity on Amazon here.  We use a rapid egg cooker to hard boil our eggs and absolutely love it!  You can check that out here.
