Tonight we decided to try a new craft activity from our favorite art blog The Artful Parent. We have gotten so many great ideas of crafty things to do around the house from this blog and couldn’t wait to try the shaving cream marbling activity! It started out a very neat and tidy affair…and quickly we were all covered in colored shaving cream. : )
First we gave our aluminum pans a good layer of shaving cream…Then we squirted paint into the shaving cream and used craft sticks to swirl it around to make cool marbling patterns! Once we had a cool pattern then we would press paper or paper plates into the colored shaving cream mixture and scrape off the excess with a craft stick. Then we played in the water bowl to wash off our hands! The water bowl was as much fun as the painting activity for you two!Both of you had fun feeling the shaving cream and playing with it! Soon everyone was covered in shaving cream! Even Dada!
Next we just painted onto plates for a while…Cody you LOVE to paint. You will often wake up from a nap and just start asking to paint. I think we need to get you into some art classes soon! One of your favorite things to do right now is paint your hand and make handprints…
Our plan is to use the paper plates to make butterflies, so hopefully we can get to that in a few days. Love you guys!
