Even though Easter has passed this can still be a great sensory experience for children to explore! It is an extremely simple set up as well! You all know how much I love sensory play and think shaving cream is one of the best sensory experiences for all ages! Here is how we made marble shaving cream Easter eggs!
Marble Shaving Cream Easter Eggs
All you need is eggs (hard boiled), shaving cream, and food coloring.
First step is to boil the eggs. Put the eggs in a pot of boiling water for about 10 minutes and let them cool completely before coloring. Here are directions from the Food Network.
While your eggs are cooling you can get your shaving cream ready! We chose to use cupcake tins, but you can also use bowls or plastic containers. Spray your shaving cream into your tins, add some food coloring, and mix it together. We used toothpicks and Q-tips.
Now the fun begins!
Take your eggs and set them into one bowl/tin/container.
I let one side soak in the color for about a minute and then rotated it over to sit for another minute. When I remembered to take the eggs out, I set it on a paper towel until all the eggs were done to let the colors soak in more. Truthfully, I don’t think it needed to sit that long, but this worked for us!
When all the eggs were colored we took a paper towel and wiped the remaining shaving cream off. Don’t be alarmed when the color starts to come off. It is mainly the top last bit of shaving cream coming off. Give the eggs a quick rinse and you are all ready to go!
I love how easy this is to do! And why should dying eggs be just around Easter?! Let’s have sensory experiences more often! Plus, shaving cream and food coloring makes some pretty neat artwork! If you have read my other posts you know I love love LOVE sensory play! Any time you have the chance to get dirty and explore I think you should take it!
