Whipped Topping Dyed Easter Eggs

The focus for this month's Pinterest Challenge was all about spring with a particular focus on Easter and gardening.   While we don't do much for Easter, my boys have always enjoyed dying Easter eggs.  We look for ideas on Pinterest each year for new ways to color eggs.  



I saw this pin for dying Easter eggs using shaving cream and thought that looked like a lot of fun.  However, I wanted to make sure our eggs were edible afterwards and so we decided to try the same technique using cool whip and food coloring. 

We gathered together our hard boiled eggs, a container of cool whip, and our food coloring.  I also had gloves on hand for the boys to use so they wouldn't dye their fingers too.  


They wanted to try out all sorts of different color combinations so we put just a bit of cool whip onto a small square of waxed paper, they added whatever colors they wanted and used toothpicks to swirl them together... like this:


Then they rolled the egg around until it was colored.




We set our messy eggs aside to try dry in an empty egg carton.



After an hour or two we wiped all the remaining cool whip off the eggs and were left with some very vibrant colors and interesting patterns.

  6. What a cool idea (see what I did there, LOL). But seriously, I have some of this in our freezer, and we won't eat it. So I might as well put it to good use.

  8. Oh, this looks fun. I wonder if I can do this with my hubby's shaving cream?

    1. Absolutely! Just don't eat them afterwards as the shaving cream smell and ingredient will leak through the shells.

  9. Very neat effect! It's good to know that it works with whipped topping as well. I wouldn't want to put shaving cream on them either! : )

  10. how fun. I remember when our kids were little we dyed eggs with dye tablets and vinegar. So boring just placing in the dye. I love how fun your dying the eggs was. Will give this a try.

    1. We used the day tablets and vinegar when my boys were small too but then we began branching out. We've tried all sorts of different techniques.

  11. Cool Whip resulted in some very pretty colors. Great idea using the whip to make them still edible. Here via Classy Flamingos.

    1. Thank you! I loved that we really couldn't tell how they would look until we wiped all the Cool Whip off.

  12. Great idea for switching out the shaving creme so that you could still eat the eggs. Makes for some beautiful marveled eggs.

  15. Those look like a lot of fun. And it's great you'll be able to eat the eggs, too.

  16. The color of your eggs turned out so pretty! Much prettier than the traditional dipped eggs, I want to try it!

  17. What a unique idea! Makes me want to try it! But since my youngest is 16, my family might think I'm a little crazy!

    1. LOL. Yep, they just might. I told my boys I might color eggs all on my own (and they all rolled their eyes at me).

  18. What pretty eggs! My kids would really enjoy this and its great you can still eat them afterwards.
