Today I’m sharing a fun and sensory-rich way to make beautiful, marbleized Easter eggs for this Easter holiday. This is a totally different take on dyeing eggs, and one I hope your children will enjoy.
Note: For more Easter egg decorating ideas, see my Easter Activities for Kids page.
To make marbleized Easter eggs, gather the following supplies:
- A shallow pan or tray
- Shaving cream
- Liquid watercolors
- Q-tip or toothpick
- Hardboiled eggs
- Paper towels
- Optional: Kid-size latex gloves (caution: should not be used for kids with latex allergies)
We started by covering the bottom of a shallow dish with shaving cream.
We then dripped three different colors of liquid watercolor paint onto the shaving cream.
My kids used a q-tip to swirl the colors into the shaving cream. A toothpick would also work well.
Then my kids rolled their eggs in the shaving cream.
They made sure to roll until the entire egg was covered in colored shaving cream.
We set the eggs to dry on a tray covered in paper towels.
After about 20 minutes, my kids used paper towels to wipe the shaving cream from their eggs.
With the shaving cream wiped off, a beautiful, marbleized egg was left behind.
