This marbleized Easter egg craft can be used to serve a number of different purposes. For example, it makes for a beautiful Easter decoration. But it is also a wonderful sensory art project for kids. And it can also teach kids about color mixing. I hope you’ll enjoy making this marbleized Easter egg as much as we did!
Note: For more Easter craft ideas, see my Easter Activities for Kids page.
To make our marblized Easter eggs, we gathered the following materials:
- Trays to contain the mess
- Cardstock (or thick paper)
- Shaving cream (aka, shaving foam)
- Various colors of liquid watercolor paints (Ours are from Discount School Supply, but you can also find other brands on Amazon.)
- Kid-size craft gloves to protect my kids’ sensitive skin
The first step was to squeeze a small amount of shaving cream onto the cardstock.
My kids then used their hands to spread the shaving cream around so it would cover the entire paper. (They used kid-size craft gloves to protect their sensitive skin, but this is not necessary for most kids.)
Once the shaving cream was spread out, they dripped small amounts of liquid watercolor paints onto the shaving cream.
At this point, kids can use their hands to swirl the colors together a bit if they like. Or they can simply used a squeegee to wipe off the excess shaving cream.
What will be left is a beautiful marblized pattern of colors. Cut into egg shapes, and voila! You’ve got a beautiful marbleized Easter egg craft to decorate for Easter!
