So we have been experimenting with Easter eggs again. I figured out how to marble eggs and still be able to peel and eat them after the Easter egg hunt is over. I work hard buying our groceries at a good price that I hate wasting any food. The thought of putting shaving cream on my eggs (like some marbled egg directions call for) made me cringe.
This time we get a bit messy. I had to keep reminding myself everything is washable, including Ms. Tiger. 🙂 She loved swirling the colors in her bowl and pulling her egg out. She was overjoyed that I was letting her dig in, and get her hands dirty.
1 C Heavy whipping cream whipped until fluffy (I am guessing a cup of pre-made whipped cream would work too)
Small shallow bowls or cups that eggs will fit in
1. Spoon approximately two tablespoons of whipped cream into bowl
2. Add food coloring to the bowl and swirl. We used liquid food coloring and gel food coloring. I think the gel colors worked better.
Make sure not to over swirl. We counted 3 stirs and then stopped.
After you use a bowl a few times the colors get muddy, so wash hands and start a new bowl. This is a great time to try new color combinations!
3. Dip egg into the whipping cream so it gets good and covered.

4. Set egg on a tray to dry. We let ours dry overnight.
5. Wash whipping cream off egg with hot water and your done.
