How to make shaving cream eggs
Spray shaving cream in a pan with sides. Shaving cream needs to be about 1/2 inch thick.
Drop food coloring onto the shaving cream.
With a toothpick pull through the colors making a marbelized effect.
Roll the egg on top of the shaving cream.
Leave the eggs covered in shaving cream for about 30 minutes.
Rinse the eggs under water and reveal beautiful tie dye eggs.
Tips for making shaving cream eggs
- Wear rubber gloves
- Don’t mix the colors too much into the shaving cream. The brightest colored eggs happened in the areas where the dye was sitting on top of the shaving cream.
- Lining the pan with aluminum foil will bake for easier cleanup.
