Shaving Cream Snow Painting            

Alttag here

• Shaving Cream
• Aluminum Foil
• Paper
• Food coloring or liquid watercolor
• White glue (optional)

1. Place a piece of aluminum foil in front of each child and squirt a dollop of shaving cream on the foil. Create shapes, towers and peaks with your hands.

2. Drop a couple of drops of food coloring in the shaving cream and let your child mix it in. Add drops of blue to yellow, red to blue, and yellow to red to show your child how they can create new colors!

3. Encourage your child to use their shaving cream-covered hands and fingers to paint on paper (like finger paint). Ask them how the shaving cream feels.

4. (optional) Mix some white school glue into the shaving cream to make it thicker. It will dry harder on the foil. Shaving cream will dry to sticky-tacky without the glue.
