We used shaving cream to create custom marbled designs on paper Easter eggs.
First we cut out a bunch of egg shapes from card stock.
They each had a glass pie plate and a can of shaving cream in their station
After filling the plate with shaving cream, use toothpicks to swirl drops of food color around.
Press the paper egg flat into the cream, pressing down to remove air pockets.
Carefully peel up your egg keeping as much cream in the plate or bowl as possible. Here are some of our paper egg patterns drying:
BUT ... while your pretty designs are drying ... fill another pie plate or glass bowl with clean shaving cream for the kids to dig in and play with!!
What a great idea! I think I'll try it this week with my girls. Thanks, Jeanne! Happy Easter to you and your family!
