Making these marbled Easter eggs definitely doubles as a fun sensory activity!
Finding ways for young kids (under 4-ish) to decorate Easter eggs can be tricky sometimes. They don’t have the patience to sit and hold an egg in a cup to make it two colors.
Or the ability to really do the fancy decorative eggs either.
But these marbled Easter eggs, little kids as young as 2 can do!
Its a super fun process!
All you’ll need to decorate these eggs is a tray of shaving cream and some food coloring! That’s it!
Fill a tray (a pie plate works great!) with shaving cream.
Drop in a several drops of two different colors of food coloring (gel coloring works great).
Drop in hard boiled eggs, one at a time into the shaving cream mix and roll it around.
It can be rolled around either by tipping the plate back and forth, rolling it. Which can be a bit tricky for little hands to do.
Or using a spoon or your hands to physically move it, which leads to amazing sensory fun for the kids that they’ll love!
Be sure to cover the eggs good with coloring. Let them play and decorate each Easter egg as long as they like!
Take them out, covered in shaving cream and let them sit for a bit.
Then wipe the shaving cream off the egg to leave a really cool marble effect.
