TIP: if you are worried about the shaving cream getting into the egg shell, you can do the same process with cool whip and food color.

Every Easter we think of fun ways for the kids to enjoy dying and coloring their Easter Eggs. When you Dye Easter Eggs with shaving cream, the kids can get right in there and have fun in the shaving cream.  And the shaving cream will actually even help clean up the mess afterwards. And second to the fun tie dye colors on the eggs, the shaving cream is so cheap! You can pick up the shaving cream in most stores for under a buck! Make sure it is shaving cream and not shaving gel. The gel will not work like the shaving cream will.

Here is how you can dye Easter eggs with shaving cream to make swirl Easter eggs.

First get the normal food coloring out of your cabinets. Or make sure you pick up the cheap liquid food coloring dye at the store.

Get one or two cans of shaving cream – remember it has to say cream, the shaving gel will not work.

A glass pan or flat bottom bowl or dish to roll the eggs in. A metal pan will work too if you don’t have glass, it is just the glass will not absorb the color like the small pits and scratches in metal might.

You can follow the directions on the back of the food coloring dye to make fun new colors. Make sure you place it in a glass cup or small bowl so it wont leave a stain behind.

Next spray a layer of shaving cream in the bottom of the glass pan. You only need it no deeper then one inch. Anything more then that will just be wasted.

Spread the shaving cream some what smooth so the coloring does not run down steep slopes and pool together.

Then with as many colors as you want to use, we found between 2-4 works best or it just blends together too much and creates brown or ugly green.

Place the drops of the food coloring in random spots all over the layer of shaving cream. The more random the better the colors will swirl.

Next with a thin toothpick, or a small narrow stick or even a lollipop stick, drag the stick through the shaving cream in random lines. Large swirls and loops will give the layering effect.

Once you have the swirls the way you think looks great, place the Easter Egg in the shaving cream on one end.

Gently roll the Easter Egg in a straight line from one side to the other.

Carefully pick up the Easter Egg and gently place it on cardboard so it will not roll.

You can leave it there till the shaving cream starts to dry up. Usually about 5-10 minutes and you can then clean it.

To clean it take a paper towel and gently dry off the shaving cream off the egg.

Don’t worry the food coloring has already done its magic.

After you have all the eggs cleaned off and dried, now you can roll them around and check out your artistic work!

Our kids enjoyed every part. With the old tablets and vinegar, they always got bored and thought it smelled.

Using shaving cream our kids thought it smelled great and had fun at every part of the project!

Getting to watch the shaving cream fly out of the can when they sprayed it into the pans, and then even had fun smoothing it all out.

It was fun for us to watch them strategically place each dot of food coloring.

They will tell you the best part was the rolling it in the cream and then the drying part when they got to see their fun work!How to dye eggs with shaving cream, Shaving Cream SWIRL eggs, Easter Eggs, #Easter, How to make swirled easter eggs

1stOur home is trying to cut out sugar and eat more natural foods.
I found these and have done a bit of tweaking to make them our own.

2nd ingred

Ingredients:
2 ripe bananas
2 cups of old-fashioned rolled oats
½ cup of frozen blue berries (thawed- I run them under warm water, so that they are not super plump)
½ cup of any kind of dried fruit. (I use dried strawberries, raisins, and mixed fruit- I buy in the bulk section at Winco)
½ cup of non-sweetened apple juice
4 tablespoons of finely chopped dates
2 tablespoons of chopped pecans (you can add walnuts-yet pecans are less expensive for us)
2 tablespoons of raw sunflower seeds
4 tablespoons of chia seeds. (if you do not use chia seeds-cut apple juice to ¼ cup- chia likes liquid- you can use flax seeds too)

Heat oven to 350°F.  Mash peeled bananas in a mixing bowl.  Add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.  Spray 9 x 12 pan with pam.  Spread mixture in the pan. Bake for 25-35 minutes.  Cool and cut into rectangles.

Hint:  You can use any combination of seeds, nuts, or berries.  Mixture stores well in a sealed container.
3 bananasBlend ripe bananas well.
4 mixtureAdd the rest of the ingredients and blend well.
5 in the panPress mixture into the lightly greased 9 x 13 pan.
They store well in a sealed container.  We like to make a double batch and have them super thick!
Healthy Eating!

I had to laugh when I was looking over old posts and realized that I have done 4 posts on how to refinish a chair.  I guess I like old chairs… or I just don’t like to throw things out???  Each of them are different, and each of them turned out really cute. I thought I would share them again in case any of you are looking for a little DIY inspiration.

1st photoThis is such an easy and delicious dessert. 
2nd ingredientsIngredients:
16 Oreos
16 ounce container of Cool Whip
1 cup of chocolate fudge
1 package of chocolate instant pudding (smaller box)
12 ice cream sandwiches
8-10 Strawberries

Supplies:
8×8 pan
tin foil

Instructions:
Line the 8 x 8 pan with tin foil.
Unwrap all 12 ice cream sandwiches, and put them back in the freezer to be used later.
Crush up 16 oreos in a bag.
Slice strawberries
Warm up the 1 cup of chocolate fudge, and let cool a bit.
Put ½ of the cool whip in a bowl and mix in cooled fudge.  Stir in the chocolate pudding.  Add the oreos, yet leave out a little bit to sprinkle on the top of the cake.
Line the bottom of the 8 x 8 pan with 4 ice cream sandwiches side by side.
Put ½ the oreo-pudding mixture on top of the ice cream sandwiches.  Place sliced strawberries on top.
Repeat ice cream sandwiches, oreo-pudding mixture, and strawberries.
Next add last 4 ice cream sandwiches.
Cover with tin foil and place in Freezer for 4 hours.
After 4 hours-take the cake out of the freezer and put on a decorative platter-apply the remaining cool-whip on top and sides of ice cream sandwiches.  Sprinkle with remaining oreos and garnish with strawberries.

Hints:  Unwrap ice cream sandwiches prior to assembly, because they melt quickly.
Cut when completely done with a seratide knife.
3rd.  pan with tin foilI put the foil in the pan and made it large enough to bring around to the top of the
ice cream sandwiches while freezing for the 4 hours.

4th whip cream and chocolateWhip-cream and fudge.  If the fudge is too warm, the cream will melt.  Not a good thing.
