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. See how to make COOL WHIP EASTER EGGS here. 

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 won’t 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.

Here is a great deal on Foam Shaving Cream It needs to be “shaving foam” not the “shaving gel”

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.

Our favorite food coloring Dye – McCormick Assorted Food and Egg Dye

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

You can use cool whip if you want to eat the eggs, or shaving cream if you just want them for display.

Whip Cream or Cool Whip works just as good..

For those worrying about the shave cream if you plan to eat them, the article says to use cool whip instead.

Won't the egg absorb the flavor of the shaving cream?

This crap did not work and we let it sit for a whole half an hour thank a lot waist of my time and my families time to

I have done this many many times. Not sure why it didn't work for you but... Were your eggs dry when you did it? Water will stop the food coloring from absorbing into the egg shell.

I would recommend the cool whip over the shaving cream if you plan to eat the eggs afterwards. I only did one egg with the shaving cream this year and when preparing that egg for a dish I was making it smelled like shaving cream still.

Yep, I had to throw out our whole batch. The shaving cream seeped into the actual eggs. Using whipped cream next year!

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!

@DoreenTalentinow I tried rinsing them off in cold and almost all the color washed off. We re-did them, this time just wiping them with a paper towel, and the color stayed on. Just want to warn others!

Anybody try this yet with cool whip or whipped cream?

@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.

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.

@scatteredmom I dot think I've seen them around either. Lots of packages that have wraps and stickers. They're no fun. :)

Of course you don't eat them!    It looks like a great idea, think I will try it.

store bought eggs have to be washed first or dyes have trouble penetrating the shell. this might be the problem.

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!

Egg shells are porous. I wouldn't eat them if you color them like this
