Tips for Easter eggs dyed with shaving cream.

  • Disposable pan. Kid’s can choose the color they want to make their eggs and really make it their own! I like to give each child a disposable pan.

    This really makes clean up a breeze! Plus, there is no fighting or arguing and each child can create the design in their color choice.

  • Make sure to use a large pan. This is also a great idea if you are having an Easter Egg Dying Party! Give each guest their own pan and it makes it all so easy.

    You can use any size pan you like. Just make sure there is enough room to make the design once you drop the food color.
  • Gloves. It is important to use use gloves while you combine the shaving cream and food coloring. Dyed Easter Eggs can be messy during the process and until they dry. Using gloves will help to prevent hands from being stained.
  • Allow to set. The eggs need time to set before wiping off the shaving cream. We waited 2 hours and they turned out perfectly. You can wipe them off sooner but the color will not be as vibrant.
  • Disposable tablecloth. We suggest using a plastic tablecloth to protect your table. Then you can easily roll everything up and toss in the trash.

Shaving cream is the easiest way to make marbled Easter eggs. It’s definitely the easiest way if kids are involved.

You can also use oil, vinegar and food color to make marbled eggs. This technique is a bit trickier but the results are gorgeous.

You can make Marble Easter Eggs with Kool-Aid. This is bit different than simply using Kool-Aid to dye Easter eggs but the results are really cool.

Variation ideas

  • Whipped Cream. Substitute whipped cream instead of shaving cream in this easy DIY. This is a good substitute if you are concerned with children licking fingers while doing this activity.
  • Gel Food Color. We used liquid but you can try using gel if you prefer to color Easter eggs.
  • Soak in vinegar. For a deeper color, you can soak the hard boiled eggs in vinegar prior to dying the eggs.

Are shaving cream dyed eggs edible?

If you plan to eat the eggs, I would suggest using whipped cream instead of shaving cream.

Just grab a container of cool whip at the store and that will work fine for colored eggs.
