Easter Eggs - The FUN way!!

So by now you all know I have many uses for shaving cream!  It's such a great sensory tool for kids to explore and they love it.  We made Easter Eggs with shaving cream and food coloring.  They're very simple and it's loads of fun for the kids to mess around in and the eggs come out pretty neat and each one is different.  Half of the fun is the big "reveal" the next day when they rinse them off and see what they ended up with from that big mess!

 Even Mason liked this activity...

They're very easy - just put shaving cream in a bowl or pot.  Add food colors, they can use multiple pots if they want to separate colors or they can swirl, tie-dye or whatever they're "vision" is for eggs/color.  Once the hard boiled eggs are covered with the shaving cream/color, they set them into an egg carton to set overnight.  The next day the just rinse them off and see what they get.  Very easy and very fun!
