Shaving Cream Painting

Shaving cream painting was a big hit at our house!!  I featured it in my 2nd article for WRAL Go Ask Mom which was posted last night: Shaving Cream Painted Easter Eggs.  For all the details and directions, go check it out now!  Then come back here for a visual account of this amazing process! 🙂

Luke asked if he could play with the squeegee when we were done.

Then he washed everything for me.  He had fun watching all the shaving cream and paint go down the drain.  The washing of the materials made for some fun sensory play in itself.

If you try this, I’d love to see your photos!  Feel free to share them on my Facebook page!  We just love how our shaving cream painting art turned out and can’t wait to do it again!

    I use elmers glue mixed with shaving cream. It makes a puffy creation. Everyone that visits my classroom has to touch. I use it to make snowmen and clouds. I will use food coloring to make it even more unusual.
