This year was a last minute rush to color easter eggs. We had thought of doing the shaving cream easter eggs like last year, but wanted to do something else. So in a house with NO FOOD COLORING .. what do we have a lot of? CRAYONS! I had seen where you can put crayons in the hot glue gun but with a few kids that doesn’t seem very safe. So the eggs were still warm and I tested an egg. It melts and you can smear!
Check it out.. again make sure your eggs are still warm!

My test egg… I love how it melted
Our eggs. It’s fun to smear the melted crayons to give it a stained look.
This is probably the most fun I have ever had dyeing Easter eggs. It was messy, but no where near as messy as regular egg dye. The colors didn’t come out to bright, but you might want to leave the shaving cream on overnight (making sure it is covered ). Food coloring will stain your skin if the shaving cream gets on your skin, you might want to wear gloves.
What you need:
Tray to work on
hard boiled eggs
Step 1: Spread your shaving cream all over your tray.
and get daddy
Step 2: add your food color
Step 3: Spread your food color out using a fork
Step 4: ADD YOUR EGGS AND ROLL!
We left the eggs in the shaving cream for about 3 hours. You can leave the on over night but I would cover the tray if you decided to do that.
Step 5: Wipe off with a paper towel. Enjoy your Easter eggs
