    Gather your supplies. You will need a disposable and wide container; aluminum baking pans work best. You will also need hardboiled eggs (cooled and dried), food coloring, and white shaving cream. (Note. Shaving gel does not work.)
    • Eggs dyed using shaving cream should not be eaten, due to the inedibility of the shaving cream. Alternately, you could use cool whip (and these eggs could be eaten).

    Now is time for the fun part. Add about 5-15 drops of food coloring onto the shaving cream, depending on the size of your container. You can use different colored food coloring, or all the same if you're going for a theme.

    Now, it's going to get messy. Start rolling your eggs around in your dyed cream and completely cover them in it. Leave the eggs in for at least 25 minutes.
    • Roll the eggs slowly to prevent the dye from mixing.
