How To Make Tie-Dye Shaving Cream Easter Eggs

How to tie dye Easter eggs step by step video tutorial using shaving cream, eggs and food coloring.

I’ve always loved dying Easter eggs, ever since I was a little girl. I have so many fun memories trying different decorating tricks with my siblings from over the years. I’ve continued the tradition with my kids and we have fun dying our eggs every Easter. However, to be totally truthful, I’m not a big fan of hard boiled eggs so if my hubby doesn’t eat them, they get thrown away – I know, shame on us.

As luck would have it, however, one day I was browsing the Easter isles at Walmart and found these amazing plaster-like eggs! They are artificial and can be dyed colors!! I bought 4 packages of 1 dozen eggs and knew immediately I wanted to make them tie-dyed with shaving cream.

I have since made several “batches” of tie-dyed eggs with shaving cream – at my son’s preschool and once with a playdate at our house. They really are that much fun to make, just like these He Is Risen Easter Preschool craft! or even this fluffy slime!
