Each year it is fun to experiment with different ways to decorate your Easter Eggs. There are so many fun options out there. This year we used shaving cream. Not shaving gel or shaving butter, good ole’ shaving cream.
Whitaker and I had so much fun picking out colors for our designs. He also loved rolling the eggs around in the shaving cream.
It is so basic and easy!
Hard Boiled Eggs
Shaving Cream (we used )
Assorted Food Gel or Food Coloring
Rubber Gloves (my PSA- I got a little carried away with the color and had stained hands for 3 days!)
Spray a 1″ layer of shaving cream in the bottom of the glass or metal casserole pan. If you want no clean up, use a disposable aluminum pan. Spread the shaving cream to make a smooth top.
Then using your selected colors, beginning adding small, random dots of food gel to the shaving cream. We used 2-3 on each design. If you use too many you will end up with a nasty brown or green color. (that does not say “Happy Easter!”)
Then using a wooden skewer or popsicle stick, drag the skewer through the shaving cream making lines. You can make swirls, loops, zigzag, whatever!
Once you have the design the way you like, place an egg in the shaving cream on one end.
Gently roll the egg in a straight line from one side to the other. My little guy liked using a spoon to roll his egg. Then carefully pick up the egg and place it on some paper towels. Leave the egg there until the shaving cream starts to dry up. Usually 10 minutes. Then you can rinse off the extra shaving cream under water or clean off with a wet paper towel.
Each Easter Egg will have its own personality based on colors and swirl designs.
