Shaving Cream Eggs

I saw this on Pinterest and thought it would be a fun way to dye Easter eggs this year. Plus, my Mom also said it was 'a great sensory activity'. So, we attempted the shaving cream eggs! It was so fun and they actually turned out pretty cute!

You basically just put down a sheet of wax paper, squirt about a palm full of shaving cream (we used the cheap stuff), put a couple of drops of food coloring on top of the shaving cream, swirled it around with a toothpick & then rolled the eggs in the cream. It was realllllllly messy but so fun & Beckham loved it! Well, he actually didn't know what to think about it but I'm pretty sure he was loving it! ;) Grami is in the below pics & I played photographer-as usual!

We let the eggs dry for about 15 minutes and just wiped off the excess with a paper towel. For some reason I forgot to take an after picture but they pretty much looked like the above picture just a little bit lighter. Of course Beckham was covered in red dye for a day or so but it completely came out of his clothes- I was shocked!!

Anyways, we are definitely going to do this again next year! We also dyed some with vinegar and all that but this was a fun alternative to the tradition! Happy Easter!!
