How to Make Shaving Cream Dyed Easter Eggs

I have always loved dying Easter eggs. It's been one of those things that we've done in our family since I can remember and now I continue the tradition with my kids. I like to find new techniques and methods to decorate our eggs and break out of the old way of doing it with the magic tablet dropped in vinegar that sits in your moms favorite coffee mug. You know what I'm talking about. The small box that has the perforated holes so you can punch them out and let your eggs drip dry all over the counter.  Well, I've got a new method. I did a crash course myself and then think this is the technique I'm gong to introduce to my kids. It was easy, a little messy but in a fun way and the eggs all turned out a little different. Why not give shaving cream dyed Easter eggs a chance? I'll show you how!

How to Make Shaving Cream Dyed Easter Eggs

I picked up cheap shaving cream {not gel!} at the dollar store.

Spray about an inch in the bottom of a baking dish covering the whole bottom.

I used a spatula to smooth out the top so that I didn't have a bunch of air bubbles and divots.

Next, use whatever food coloring you want. I only used three colors, blue, yellow and red. I tried to keep the blue on the left side, the yellow was throughout and the red was on the far right side.

Use a toothpick or a skewer to drag the food coloring throughout the shaving cream mixing the colors.

Once the colors are mixed in, put rubber gloves on.

Do this. Don't skip this step. You will thank me later.

Grab a hard boiled egg {you can find the recipe on how to cook hard boiled eggs in your Instant Pot here} and roll it in the shaving cream.

Once your egg is coated, place it on a paper plate. This will allow the food coloring to seep into your egg shell and dye the egg.

If you want a deeper or richer color, leave them for about an hour. If you want a softer paler color, leave them for about twenty minutes.

Rinse your eggs off in cold water allowing the shaving cream to wash off. Then refrigerate your eggs until you are ready to eat them or get them ready for the big hunt!

I like how they all came out different colors.

You can play around with them and see if you can come up with new patterns and colors. Whatever you do, have fun with it! Tag me on social media {I'm @msrachelteodoro everywhere!} if you make these. I'd love to see how yours turn out!
