To prepare for this activity, I sprayed some white shaving foam into a foil tray, then added a bit of blue and pink paint.
I gave F a freebie wooden chopstick so that he could swirl the paint around. Then I laid the paper over the top, lightly pressed down, then removed it. I used a plastic blade to wipe the foam off the paper and it left these pretty pictures!
I added some green paint and we repeated the process.
Then I added some orange paint!
We tried both paper and card, and the card worked best.
We did this activity again at a crafty playdate. Miss C (5 yrs) had a great time swirling her paint around in the shaving foam.
She produced some wonderful artwork from the prints!
And she also kindly demonstrated what happens when you stick your hands in the painty foam mess!
