Dying easter eggs with shaving cream not only makes for a unique marbelized egg, but adds in a whole lot of sensory fun!  Playing in shaving cream is a great way to work on improving tactile sensitivities with your child.  

Below are the steps to making shaving cream dyed easter eggs.

  1. Spray standard white shaving cream into cake pan, covering the bottom surface.

  2. Drop in your selected color of food dye - the more drops the brighter the egg upon completion!

  3. Use utensil or toothpick to swirl colors in the shaving cream.

  4. Place a cool, dry hard boiled egg in the shaving cream, rolling around with fingers, tool, or moving pan to completely cover egg.

  5. Let sit for 10 minutes in pan or on separate plate.

  6. Remove egg, rinsing shaving cream off in the sink.

  7. Ta-da! You have a beautifully dyed easter egg!
