It was fun with shaving cream in the art area during the AM program recently, with the kids making marbled paper one day and “cloud jars” another.
For the marbled paper, the participating parent smeared shaving cream on a tray and smoothed it. Then the kids dripped food coloring around and swirled it through with sticks.
When they were satisfied, the parent helped them put pieces of paper over the color-filled cream …
and then scraped off the shaving cream, leaving behind marbled paper!
The cloud jars were clear glass jars filled with water and topped with shaving cream. Then the kids put food coloring in with droppers, creating swirling clouds under the water. Lots of fun and messy hands ensued!
