If you have a young child, I bet he/she loves soap. My daughter would think I was the world’s best Mom if I gave her a soap pump and told her to spend the afternoon playing in the sink.
I don’t know why kids love soap so much. I think it might be because it is foamy and makes bubbles. In reality, it is probably because it has the potential to create a huge, watery, soapy mess.
This project involves frozen shaving gel. Not only does it mold to the Easter eggs, it also has a really cool texture. As it melts, you have to add a little water to help it form a super fun foam!
Your kids will love this project. My daughter had a blast playing with the frozen shaving gel Easter eggs.
Frozen Shaving Gel Easter Egg Fun Project
- Easter eggs
- 1 can of shaving gel (has to be the gel not the cream)
- Plastic storage bag
- Large plastic container
- Fill each half of the Easter eggs with shaving gel.
- Snap the two halves together.
- Put the gel filled eggs in a plastic bag and place in your freezer.
- Once frozen, put in a plastic container in the sink.
- As the shaving gel eggs thaw, add water to create fun foam.
I purchased inexpensive, store brand shaving gel. We picked out strawberry scented shaving gel at Target. Our frozen shaving gel eggs smelled great!
To set up this project, I put a big plastic container in the sink. I then put the frozen eggs into the container. My daughter opened the eggs and removed the frozen shaving gel. She had a lot of fun squishing the eggs. As the shaving gel thawed, we added a little water and created a really fun foam. We used her plastic tea dishes and she made a foaming tea party.
My daughter had several hours of fun with the frozen shaving gel Easter eggs. This project took very little prep time. Make sure you plan ahead because you have to wait several hours for the gel to freeze. I let the eggs freeze overnight.
I hope you and your kids have fun with the frozen shaving gel Easter eggs.
