We’ve been doing a lot of fun crafts while the girl has been home, so much so that I haven’t had a lot of time to write about them. But one thing we’ve done that was super fun, easy setup, great for kids and adults (and super messy!) was making marbled paintings with shaving cream.
The only thing you might not have in your house to do this project is the shaving cream, because you need some that is foam, not gel. I bought mine at the dollar store but you can find inexpensive shaving cream just about anywhere.
What You’ll Need
- shaving cream
- paint (we used regular acrylic, but you can also use liquid watercolors if you have them)
- heavy paper (we used cardstock)
- craft sticks
- a big tray to work in and a covered work surface (we used the kitchen table covered with a plastic tablecloth)
Spray shaving cream on the tray and spread out.
Drop paint onto shaving cream. Mix a little with a craft stick.
Use a craft stick to scrape the shaving cream off the paper. You might also want a paper towel handy to wipe down the edges.
A few of these I also made by “painting” with the craft stick that was covered with shaving cream and paint.
Either way it’s really cool to see how this works and how each one comes out different.
Have you ever tried making marbled paintings with shaving cream? I’d love to hear how it went for you!
