This is one of the activities my toddler has enjoyed most on our crafting adventures. The whole process is lots of messy fun and the end result is pretty cool too.
- Tray with sides
- Shaving foam (just get the cheapest from the supermarket)
- Chopstick or paintbrush
- Length of cardboard (as long as the width of your paper, a piece of cereal packet works well)
How to do Shaving Foam Marbling
Spray shaving foam into a tray until you cover the base.
- Add some large splodges of paint.
- Using a chop stick or the end of a paintbrush, let your child swish it around, mixing the paint through the shaving foam.
- Lay a piece of paper on top and press down gently.
- Lift out the paper and scrape off the excess foam with the cardboard.
- You will reveal a unique marble effect left by the paint on the paper.
Why not try using cardstock to make a greeting card. Once you’ve finished making prints, it’s lots of fun for your child to stick their hands in the shaving foam and mix it all up for some messy play.
