::: marbled shaving cream
We love this idea from ‘The Imagination Tree’ blog where the children colour a tub of shaving cream, swirl it around and print it onto card.
When the shaving cream is scraped off the resulting print is so random and beautiful!
The children happily popped on their smocks, filled up the eye droppers with coloured water …
and squirted and squirted and squirted!
They LOVED squirting! We didn’t actually need to do anything else – they were content.
Anyway, when we mentioned pressing the card onto their creations, scraping and seeing what they had created, some children were keen to give it a go.
We found that the colour that has been added to the shaving cream needs to be fairly intense as is gets somewhat diluted in the process. Food colouring wasn’t strong enough so we soon switched to edicol dye.
The first prints were a bit wishy washy, but they were stunning once we upped the colour intensity.
For these three year olds however, it was really just about the squirting!
