Summer Fun: Finger Painting with Shaving Cream

One of the activities on our Summer Fun List is to make shaving cream books.  We've done lots of shaving cream art and it's probably the most requested activity in our house.

Usually we use a spoon or some type of stirring device, but this time we decided to throw caution to the wind and do some finger painting with shaving cream.

After you squeeze your shaving cream into your pan....

Have your kiddo mix it all up with their fingers.  For the prettiest results, try to leave some the swirl-y patterns you see above.

Press your paper onto your shaving cream design and lift up.  Let it sit for about 4-5 minutes before scrapping off all the shaving cream.

You'll be left some awesome colors and awesome patterns.

And...if your sweetie is like mine, she'll probably want to play around some more!!

Happy painting!
