Matts Mom came to visit this weekend, and she always brings a fun bag of projects to do with my kids. Yesterdays she told me they were going to make Shaving Cream Art… I could not wrap my head around the project at first. But it turned out really pretty and my girls loved every second of it.
- Shaving Cream
- Acrylic paint ( from the craft store)
- Card stock or other stiff paper cut into an egg shape
- Window squeegee
- Shallow pan or plate to put the the shaving cream on
- Paper towels or wet rag to clean the squeegee after each paper
Start by spraying a layer of shaving cream in the bottom of a shallow pan or plate. Then squirt or drip the paint on top of the shaving cream, place a piece of paper on top and gently rub it to make sure it makes contact with the whole surface.
Slowly pull it up, it will look like a smeared mess…. but then use a window squeegee to take the shaving cream off. Underneath you will find a brightly colored fun painted egg.
This project can be a little messy so make sure you wear your painting clothes! Have fun !
