Craft Time:Marbled Easter Eggs...

This was a super fun craft.  It kept my kids entertained for hours and now has my friends thinking I am a little crazy.  You see, it involves shaving cream and I let me kids go to town with that shaving cream as you will see in a bit, but first let's get down to crafting business!
You will need:
card stock
shaving cream (I bought the El cheapo kind at Wal-Mart)
acrylic paint
craft stick or something with a flat edge

First draw an egg shape on a piece of card stock... 
Next fill a disposable baking dish with shaving cream.... 
Next, squirt the paint onto the shaving cream and gently swirl together with a craft stick.  Be careful not to mix too much or you will get brown, yucky colored paint... 
Press your paper into the shaving cream with the egg shape facing up...

Allow the paint to dry for about 20 minutes then scrape off the shaving cream with the flat edge of a craft stick.  

Now came the best part of all!!  Once the girls were done, I squirted the remainder of the shaving cream in a big pile right on the kitchen table!!!!  I posted a picture on Facebook and one of my friends asked me if it was right on the table with nothing underneath.  She said I was crazy!:0)  I may be crazy, but I was awarded the Fun Mom award for this!!!  I have it hanging on my fridge for proof, but forgot to take a picture!
This summer I am going to let them loose outside then they can just hose themselves off when they are finished!!!  The shaving cream was pretty easy to clean up, but we were still finding it in various places throughout the house last night! 

Here is a random picture that doesn't go with this post at all other than it is Easter related.... 

We colored eggs on Thursday.  I am so thankful that Brad is usually willing to help with this project!  I always seem to break more eggs than I actually color!

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter!!!

  1. Not crazy at all. My mom always did this with her preschool class... 20 4-year-olds! :) It was fun and, like you said, cleaned up pretty easily. Smelled clean too! Happy Easter!
