 Thought this looked like a fun way to dye eggs, I had never seen it before.

SHAVING CREAM EGG DYE
1. Spread cheap white shaving cream in a cookie sheet
2. Apply drops of neon food coloring across surface
3. Use toothpicks to swirl colors around
4. Roll the dried, cooled hardboiled eggs in the colorful cream (we used disposable kitchen gloves to reduce the tattoo effect)
5. Allow to set for 3-4 minutes on a paper plate
6. Wipe off shaving cream with paper toweling
7. Rinse! Voila! Beautiful marbleized eggs, done quickly!

    I have never heard of that but it does look really neat! I'll have to copy it down to try it out this year.

     Nope never heard of it but it looks like something my kids would love to do because they love to play with shaving cream.

    This looks very pretty and sounds like a fun art activity!  I'm guessing that you can't eat the eggs afterward, right?

    Hmmm... I would be leary of eating them too. Not sure if the chemicals in the shaving cream would leach through or not. I wouldn't want to waste the eggs if we can't eat them.

     It didn't say but I never thought of that, will have to check it out.

     I am going to do this.  It will make it easier for my toddlers to do.

    I wonder if you could use a heavy whipped cream to eliminate the chance of chemicals geting into the eggs?
