Cut a small heart, a circle and a cross shape out of 3 different colours of paper and glue onto a paper plate (heart onto cross, cross onto circle and circle onto plate).

Shaving Foam Eggs

Shaving Foam Eggs 1

You will need:

Shaving Cream

Card stock

Paint

Tray or box lid

Paintbrush, toothpick or fork (something with a pointy end)

Newspapers

Scraper tool or old gift card

 

Instructions:

To get started with the messy part, spray some shaving cream onto your tray and spread it around.

Next take the paint and squirt it all over the shaving cream.  Try blobs of paint throughout, or make lines, squiggles, anything you want really, with the paint.

Now for the fun part! Using the pointy end of a paint brush, drag it through the shaving cream and paint making straight lines back and forth. Then do it again, but this time go up and down. The shaving cream will start to get a marbleized look to it. And this would be a fun time to experiment with different tools, like a fork or toothpick.

Take one of your paper shapes and placed it on top of the shaving cream, applying a little bit of pressure so it smooshes into the shaving cream and paint.

Then pull it up and put it in a safe place to sit for a few minutes.

Using some sort of scraping tool, scrape all the shaving cream off the paper.

Let the paint dry for a bit and then your project will be ready to be put on display!
