Shaving Cream Glitter Sensory Paint for Kids

Shaving cream, glitter and glue! What better ingredients for messy fun come your child have? A few weeks ago we made colorful collage paper by painting in a bag. This time I’m swapping out the temperas for some fantastically fun sensory shaving cream play.

Not only can your little artist make her own sparkly puff paint, but she can explore the ooey, gooey mess that it makes. Did I mention, all while learning about letters? How? Read on to find out…

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        Shaving cream

·        Glitter – In a few different colors.

·        Clear-drying school glue

·        Cardstock paper or another thick paper

·        A plastic sandwich baggie

Here’s What to Do:

1.     Squirt a mound of shaming cream into the baggie.

2.     Add a teaspoon or so (you don’t have to measure it, your child can simple squeeze a little puddle of it in) of glue into the shaving cream.

3.     Sprinkle the glitter into the bag. Use one color or a few. You can also up the sensory experience and use a variety of glitter types (i.e., course and fine sparkles) to create multiple textures.

4.     Twist the top of the baggie together.

5.     Mush the mixture. Have your child mash, smoosh and mush the shaving cream, glitter and glue until she’s ready to paint with it.

6.     Turn the bag inside out and flip the paint mixture onto the paper.

7.     Finger paint with it. After your child smooths the shaving cream mix across the paper, she can use her fingertips to ‘draw’ letters (instead of painting the letters on the paper, she’s actually wiping away the shaving cream to reveal the symbols). When she’s done drawing a letter (or a word), she can wipe the shaving cream paint back across the page and start over again.

If you want to save your child’s artwork, have her stop the smoothing and drawing process when she’s got a letter that she’s happy with, and let the paint/paper dry. Your child can also draw numbers or shapes with the shaving cream paint.
