Shaving Cream Snow Painting

snowklafe.gifAge: Preschool and up
Time: An hour or more
Type of activity: Arts and Crafts

Create a picture of a cool, snowy afternoon without having to step outside!

Materials Needed:
· Shaving cream (foam)
· White glue
· Construction paper
· Food coloring (optional)
· Small plastic bowl (one per color)
· Small paintbrush (or Q-tips)

What to do:

Step One: If you'd like your snow painting to have color, mix a small amount of glue with a drop of food coloring in a plastic bowl. If you'd like your painting to appear white, do not add any food coloring to the glue.

Step Two: Add an equal amount of shaving cream to the colored glue.

Step Three: Make a new mixture for each color you'd like to paint.

Step Four: Use the paintbrush or a Q-tip to paint pictures with the shaving cream on a piece of construction paper.

Step Five: Let the picture dry.

When the picture has dried, the shaving cream will be puffy -- just like real snow!
