Marbled Easter Eggs

Nathan has been wanting to make some Easter crafts lately....so we made these Easter eggs today.
 
 
this is like the marbled leaves craft we made a year or so ago.
 
You will need paper shaped eggs (we used paper plates, but you can use card stock or any other type of heavy paper, thin paper will rip) shaving cream, paint and a squeegee.  It's also a very good idea to layer some newspaper or use an old plastic tablecloth to cover your table...this craft is SUPER messy.
 
 
Squirt the shaving cream into a container large enough for the egg to fit into.  Then, put some brightly colored paint on top of the shaving cream
 
 
Using the end of a wooden spoon, swirl the paint around in the shaving cream mixture.
 

Place the eggs into the mixture and press down a bit and then set aside for a minute or so.
 
 

Using the squeegee, scrape off the excess shaving cream on the eggs. 
 
 
 
 
 
The end result is a beautiful swirly marbled egg.
 
 
Nathan and I made this cute display to show off his eggs.
 
 
 
**For whatever reason Blogger let me adjust the first few pics to a larger size, but wouldn't let me adjust the last pics...I hope you can see them well enough (because I give up trying to fix them).  Maybe in the future I can play with it and try to adjust them again.
