Why Do We Dye Easter Eggs?
Dying Easter eggs has been a long time tradition which has religious roots. The the Orthodox and Eastern Catholic church, an egg was dyed red to symbolise the blood of Christ.
Dying Easter eggs has become more of a fun kids activity these days, however if you are Christian you can always teach the kids the symbolic meaning behind dying Eggs.
How To Get Easter Egg Dye Off Hands
Dye can be tricky to get off, especially when it’s on your hands. One of the best ways to remove Easter Egg Dye from the hands is to dab some rubbing alcohol onto a cotton ball and wipe the area where the dye is stuck.
You can also use soap as a back up. This should help remove the dye from skin.

Here are the supplies you will need for your Easter Eggs:

- Shaving cream
- large muffin pan

Easter Egg Dye Recipe
Here is our recipe to help you learn how to make your own DIY Easter Egg Dye.
Squirt a thin layer of shaving cream in each muffin cup.
Use the plastic spoon to even out the shaving cream in each cup.
Drop 5-10 drops of food coloring of choice into each cup. You can create different color combinations.
Use a toothpick to swirl the colors around in each cup, creating a tie-dye effect.
Put on gloves. Carefully place an egg into each muffin cup and rotate the egg into the muffin cup, covering the whole egg.
Repeat this step for all eggs.
Allow your shaving foam eggs to sit for 10-15 minutes.
Rinse each egg off under cold water and place the eggs to dry on the lined pan or container.
