Shaving cream printing – rainbow clouds

This activity is fun BUT it is messy! Toddlers might try and eat it so we wouldn’t suggest doing this activity with them (as yummy as it may look!) Ready to see how we made these pretty rainbow piccys?

We used a large plastic tray and lined it in thick shaving cream. We then dropped food colouring onto the cream and swirled it around with the back of a disposable spoon. Using plain paper we “printed’ the colours by smoothing it onto the shaving cream, gently lifting it off and then scraping the shaving cream off with some cardboard (a plastic plastering tool might work well too). Then we hung them to dry. Next time I would use card stock as the paper gets a bit wet and fragile. I aslo think the card stock would be perfect for card making, decorations and paper flowers and it smells really good! Bonus!
