It’s so fun to see how each child creates their egg.
Tips for dying Easter eggs with shaving cream
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.
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.
How to tie dye Easter eggs and make marbled Easter eggs?
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.
How do you dye eggs with food coloring?
You can use food color from the grocery store or some people like to use the gel food coloring. This really provides for a darker egg if you are going for a more vibrant color.
It’s also really fun to dye eggs with food color with an egg without the yolk. Just blow out the yolk and then dye the egg shell with fun colors!
Have you ever dyed the eggs out of their shell and made Easter deviled eggs? These are so pretty and make the table just look so festive!
We started coloring Easter eggs with shaving cream last year and it was a blast!
I was a little skeptical at first and wondered would coloring Easter eggs with shaving cream work! I feared we would end up with just a big mess of shaving cream and food coloring everywhere.
However, dying Easter eggs with shaving cream ended up being one of my favorites Easter egg decorating techniques. They really do end up with a pretty marbled tie dye effect.
It’s so cool looking and really fun to make with all the shaving cream. Plus, I love that it uses items I already have around the house.
Coloring eggs with shaving cream is really frugal too! I don’t have to buy any kits!
We also learned how to dye Easter Eggs with Kool-Aid and that is a really fun way to dye eggs as well.
I love to use my pretty ceramic Easter basket and let the kids put a few of their decorated eggs inside. It has become an annual tradition!
I put this basket on our side table in the living room and each child looks forward to seeing their eggs proudly displayed in this basket. The kids have so much fun coloring Easter eggs and it creates lasting memories.
They just love seeing the eggs they decorated on display in Mom’s special basket. I love making these priceless memories.
Such a good reminder that the best things in life aren’t the ones that you go out and buy. 🙂 What special traditions do you have with your family?
Is it safe to dye Easter eggs with shaving cream?
Yes, it is. This method is one of my favorite ways to dye Easter eggs.
I recommend using disposable rubber gloves to make these tie dye eggs for Easter. Drops of food coloring can get on your hands and wearing the gloves will help prevent stained hands.
This will really help so that your kiddos aren’t walking about for days with red hands!
Another tip is to buy extra cans of shaving cream. No doubt a child will spray too much and not leave enough for another child……Just buy a couple of extra cans of shaving cream. Don’t ask me how I know……. 🙂
Do you cool eggs before dying?
Yes, you want to make sure the eggs are completely cool before dying. This helps to protect little hands and makes the activity easier as well.
Materials for Shaving Cream Easter Eggs:
- Liquid Food Coloring (We used McCormick neon food coloring)

How to dye Easter eggs with shaving cream:
3. With glove covered hands, carefully roll an egg into the food coloring and shaving cream mixture and place onto an egg carton to set. Repeat for the desired number of eggs.
4. Let eggs set. I let mine set about 2 hours. Cover your hands with gloves again and use paper towel to gently wipe away the shaving cream.
Now that you know how to dye Easter Eggs with Shaving Cream, it is so simple!
Your kids will have a blast making these gorgeous eggs. I don’t even fool with a dye kit at all anymore!

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.
