Fall Shaving Cream Art for Kids


Ooey, gooey shaving cream is a super-simple way of adding a sensory experience to your child’s art activities. I’m all for using paints, but making your own colorful cream has its advantages. The fluffy texture creates a 3-D piece of art that seems to pop off of the page. Your child can also mix her own colors and then use it as a textured “finger paint.”

Sadly the sunny pool-filled days of summer are almost over. That said, sweater-weather is almost here. What does this have to do with shaving cream art? I’ve made my fair share of fall paint, print and sculpture projects. This time I’m combining the tactile cream with autumn trees. Your little artist can glop, drop and fluff this DIY paint, creating the colorful leaves of fall!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        Shaving cream

·        Card stock paper

·        A popsicle stick

·        Red and yellow food coloring

·        Glue

Here’s What to Do:

1.     Spray three piles of shaving cream. I used wax paper as a barrier.

2.     Drip red food coloring into one pile, yellow into the next and both colors into the third. Have your child mix the food coloring through the shaving cream. The red and yellow one will make orange.

3.     Dot glue lines on the back of a popsicle stick. Your child can press it down on the card stock to make a tree trunk.

 
4.     Add fall leaves! Your child can use her fingers to paint red, yellow and orange leaves around the popsicle stick trunk.
