Sawyer wants to play with shaving cream ALL. THE. TIME. Yesterday I decided to mix it up a little bit by giving him the opportunity to create some art instead of just mixing colors and allowing him to make a mess. We filled up cups with the shaving foam (make sure you use the shaving foam and not the gel!) and mixed in a few drops of liquid food coloring.
Note: you might also want to make sure that the shaving cream you have is unscented unless you don’t mind a strong aroma of aftershave lingering around for the rest of the day. Trust me.
After awhile the boys ditched the brushes, because shaving cream just feels sooooo good and squishy between your fingers.
Sutton and Sawyer stayed at their easel for over an hour! They created as many paintings as they could fit on our outdoor clothesline drying rack – it was jam packed with their art, and they were proud little artists!
I absolutely LOVE the amazing texture and marbelization you get with this technique!
