Shaving Cream Eggs

Lay down some newspaper and let the kids get messy with something that’s really easy to clean up: shaving cream! The result is pretty -- and you’ll appreciate only having to use water to clean up.

Blogger behind the idea: Little Wonders Day

Best for kids ages: 2 and up

What you’ll need: A tray, shaving cream, cardstock or construction paper, acrylic paints, a squeegee, a toothpick, paintbrush, or spoon (something to swirl the paint)

How to make it: Grab a tray and squirt enough shaving cream to cover the smooth surface. Next, squirt acrylic paint onto the shaving cream (be sure to choose as many colors as you want!). Make a zigzag shape through the paint with a toothpick, a paintbrush, a spoon (or fingers!) to produce a marble effect. Using construction pape, cut out egg shapes and press the paper into the paint/shaving cream. Using a squeegee, gently smooth the shaving cream off the paper, and set it aside to dry. A few hours later, you and your child can decorate the house with these unique Easter eggs!
