Usually we do it the night before Easter or on Easter. This year we are doing it early since I go in tomorrow for my csection. I think I'm more excited than my kids. Haha. Once DD comes home from school we are going to the store to get our egg decorating supplies :)

When do you dye your eggs? What type of dye/craft products do you use?

I love to write on the egg with the white crayon then dye it. I think we might use kool-aid this year.

 We are going to do it tomorrow. We always do it on Good Friday.

We buy the egg dye kit and use vinegar and go to town.

I love egg hunts. I bought some plastic eggs to hide around in the hospital room. Though I'm hoping to be home on or before Easter.

How do you do it with shaving cream? Sounds fun and messy.

How to Make Shaving Cream Easter Egg Dye

Facebook

This is how you can make some awesome marbleized looking Easter Eggs quickly and easily, without a lot of mess and spending a lot of money.

Here’s what you do:

  1. Get some cheap white shaving cream, and spread out on a cookie sheet.
  2. Dribble food coloring across the surface. Neon food coloring makes cooler looking eggs.
  3. Use toothpicks to swirl the colors around in the shaving cream.
  4. Take your dried, and cooled hard  boiled egg, and roll it around in the cream. You can use sandwich baggies as gloves to help keep the coloring consistent, keep finger prints off, and keep from coloring “you”.
  5. Sit colored eggs to the side on a paper plate and allow them to dry for five minutes.
  6. After allowing the eggs to sit, wipe off shaving cream and rinse with water!

There you have it, a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to get some very cool looking eggs for Easter this year.
