A fun and easy DIY craft you can do with your kids this Easter, you will love these simply shaving cream Easter eggs.
The magic of raising children is learning to see things through their eyes. All the fun colors, sights, and sounds that accompany everyday life is just amazing. They can see things that even adults can miss at times.
Taking advantage of that, and incorporating learning with it can make a holiday even more fun. These easy DIY shaving cream Easter eggs are an easy craft that kids can do. You can use it to teach colors, or talk about Easter if you’d like as well.
Using shaving cream will make the eggs non edible. However, if you would like to still eat the boiled, colored eggs, simply use frozen whipped topping like Cool-Whip instead of shaving cream.
What you will need for these easy Easter eggs
- Boiled eggs, with the shell left on
- Shaving cream or thawed frozen whipped topping
- Food coloring
- Bamboo skewers
- Muffin tin or one container for each color
How to make easy shaving cream eggs for Easter
- Prepare a muffin tin with shaving cream or whipped topping in each well. Top with food coloring and swirl slightly.
- Place one egg in each well and turn to coat. Remove and place on paper toweling. Allow to rest for 20 to 30 minutes.
- Remove shaving cream by rinsing with water, being careful not to rub the eggs as it may remove the color.
How to store these Easter eggs
Boiled eggs will go bad if left out at room temperature. Store your eggs in the fridge, and bring out to decorate as needed, replacing them in the fridge after an hour or so.
Having said that, if you leave them at room temperature for more than 2 hours total, they may not be safe to eat at all. Better safe and toss them than to risk getting sick.
