Dyeing Eggs with Toddlers

How do you safely dye eggs with toddlers?
I've done this method before when there was a parent for each child
so how do you I make it safe for my three?
 The main change was to replace shaving cream with cool whip.
And I diluted the food colouring so their hands wouldn't be totally dyed.
 For the twins this was all about discovery.
 The texture and the taste
and trying to make the egg move.
 Of course putting them in the same chairs that they eat, with their bibs on may have sent a message that it was time to eat.  I couldn't think of any other way to do this without having it all over the house.  And unfortunately it was a rainy day so we couldn't do it outside.
 Here are the eggs before the cool whip was washed off.
The colour isn't as bright since the food colouring had been diluted with water.  But it doesn't matter as the process was so much fun.
