I just did this with Cool Whip and they came out awesome! I will do this every year! We even swirled some of the dyed eggs and they look really great too! But when we cleaned them off I didn't wipe them with a paper towel because we would have had to use too many, so I tried gently rinsing them off in cold water and it worked perfectly!
@Miranda_Price cool. I just think it's dumb that they don't have a plain kit anymore. At least, I couldn't find one.
Please don't eat this oh my gosh! The shaving cream can soak through the membrane on the eggs. When you crack your eggs open you'll see the coloring seeped through and your eggs will be slightly colored. Shaving cream is not edible! The dyes you buy in the store are non toxic and safe to eat. Please don't eat the eggs if you due them this way! I see this every year at Easter time and it drives me craY that people promote this way to dye eggs without thinking of food safety!
Notice when you dye eggs with food coloring the egg when I crack open the shell is colored too well duh you can not use shaving cream seriously gosh ppl only use whip cream or there's gonna be bunch of sick kids this year wow
what kind of harmful chemicals are in shaving cream .....!?!?!? I don't think it's a good idea at all !!!!!
I've been blowing out my eggs for scrambled eggs in the morning. That way we can have a bunch of eggs to color and don't have to eat them or throw them away. Also use eggs for summer craft project by breaking up the shells and gluing in mosaic designs.
@gigisofiaaa yes I'm going to do this!
Read the link. It's very easy and works extremely well. Most kids can do it on their own after simple instruction! Basically, spray cream into glass cake pan about one inch deep, put several drops of color anywhere, use toothpick to swirl (not mix) colors then roll an egg through! Wait 10 or so minutes then just wipe off with paper towel. Have fun!
@scatteredmom I dot think I've seen them around either. Lots of packages that have wraps and stickers. They're no fun. :)
They have the box Easter egg dye kit at Big Lots for like $2. It brought back memories. I like this idea but I would use cool whip over the shaving cream.
@Miranda_Price exactly. You don't need wraps and stickers. There's loads of things in your house already.
@scatteredmom @Miranda_PriceDollar Tree, Walmart, Safeway and Fred Myers had the plain dye kits here.
