Making the Dye:

  • Use a spatula or spoon to smooth & level the shaving cream surface.  Then, place drops of food coloring along the surface.
  • You can use one food color or many colors to create different effects.  We used neon food dye.
  • Use a spoon or spatula to gently swirl the drops of color around on the surface of the shaving cream.

Dying Easter eggs with Shaving Cream

  • Have kids carefully place the egg(s) into the pan of shaving cream.

  • Allow them to sit for 3-5 minutes, and then turn them to the other side.  
  • Allow the eggs to sit for another few minutes, and then carefully remove them from the shaving foam, and place them onto paper towels.

  • Then, have kids gently blot away any access shaving foam.  Do not rub, as that will remove the coloring.
  • Set the eggs onto a clean surface to dry for 10-15 minutes.

My kids loved this activity and had so much fun dying Easter eggs with shaving cream!

Extend the Fun:
  • Try mixing colors.  Use two food colors that come together to make a new color like red and blue.  What results do you get?
  • Do you have younger children?  Substitute whipped cream in place of shaving cream for a taste-safe version of this egg dying technique.
  • Do your kids love things that glow-in-the-dark?  Try making neon swirly eggs!
