This is one of those projects that you don't get the wow factor out of until you finally do it. We have become a little addicted to making these paintings now. It feels almost magical when you reveal the paint under all the shaving cream.

How We Did It

Shaving Cream Prints
We used liquid watercolor paint for this, but you can also use food color for this project.

We first filled our shallow tray with shaving cream and spread it out into an even layer.

Next, Emma added a few drops of the paint right on top.

With a skewer we swirled the paint into the shaving cream. This was especially fun for my two-year old. It is all he wanted to do the entire time!

Once we were satisfied with our swirl design Emma laid her card stock right on top of the shaving cream and pressed softly.

It was already so beautiful when we lifted it up. With an old towel we wiped away the shaving cream to reveal the beautiful painting underneath.

We made a few bookmarks with some of our designs. They all came out so beautiful!
