Around my house dying of Easter eggs hasn’t changed much since I was a little kid. We always go to the store buy one of those kits that you put a little color tablet into vinegar and then place your eggs into the solution. The only thing that has really changed since I was a kid with those kits is that it now come with stickers and sometimes a white crayon to draw on your egg first.
With two little kids under the age of five in our house, our eggs always end up this brownish color because they think it’s fun to dip them in each cup of color. I wanted to have a fun way to dye our eggs without ending up with gross colored eggs.
My kids had so much fun coloring the eggs using the shaving cream method. If your kids a neat freak like my daughter you will want them to wear gloves while they touch the eggs. The food coloring will stain your hands but it tends to come off after a day or two.
If you plan on eating the hard boiled eggs you can do the same exact thing using cool whip instead of the shaving cream if you would prefer to. However I am now 33 years old and have eaten eggs dyed in shaving cream, but it is easy to do with cool whip if you prefer, just change out cool whip for the shaving cream.
