The rainy snowy day outside has got the creative juices flowing inside! The girls and I had fun making shaving cream stationary using just 3 ingredients which we had in the house- shaving cream, food coloring and paper (the thicker the better). The girls now smell like freshly shaven men but the artwork was worth it! We have also tried making stationary in the past with both whip cream and cool whip when I was worried about curious mouths sampling the foam and it worked fine but the shaving cream definitely lends itself to the brightest colors and sharpest designs.
3) Using a plastic knife or toothpick draw lines through food coloring drops until desired design is achieved
4) Gently place paper onto shaving cream and tap lightly ensuring entire paper is pressed onto surface.
6) Use spatula to remove excess shaving cream from paper revealing design.
Some other shaving cream activities for the toddler crowd we came up with while polishing off Daddy's toiletries included:
Finger painting with Shaving cream
Writing letters in shaving cream
Using different size paint brushes to paint with shaving cream
* The favorite part of the activity however remains spraying the shaving cream out themselves and watching it expand!!!
