Dyeing Easter Eggs




 Happy Easter everyone!  We had a fun day, and we had our usual Easter egg hunt and egg dyeing time.  We decided to try something different this year, Aaron found an idea for dyeing eggs with shaving cream and food coloring.  Just spray a bunch of shaving cream in a cookie sheet, dot food coloring all over it, then swirl.  Cover eggs in the shaving cream mixture, then let sit.  It sounded fun, so we tried it out.  As you can see from the top picture, the eggs did not turn out very dark, although they do look kind of cool.  We left the shaving cream dye stuff on overnight, and it still didn't darken very much.  Oh well ;(  It was fun to play with the shaving cream, and it smelled a lot better than vinegar does :).  We had fun doing that together as a family, so that was worth it.  Hope you all had a very happy Easter!  We had for our Easter dinner, ham, pineapple, rolls, twice baked potatoes, and a chocolate cake recipe I will feature tomorrow.


  1. I consider the shaving cream experiment to be an utter failure.

  2. WE missed dyeing eggs with you this year. Aaron, I am not sure why you think it was a failure. They are lovely. We love you all. mom
