Yes, you read that right. HOMEWORK. My 3 year old had homework last week. It was fun preschool homework, but still. I got an email last week from the teacher saying she was sending home a giant paper feather to be decorated however we want. So, instead of letting her color away with crayons, markers, and decorate with stickers (read: hot mess), I decided to bust out an art project I’ve been wanting to try for a while. Shaving cream marbled painting. I’m sure you’ve seen it on Pinterest. Looks fun, easy, and messy–just what my little ones likes.
Step one: cover the table to protect it from toddler mess and gather my materials. I had everything on hand, with the exception of shaving cream. Had hubby pick up something cheap at the store.
Lift up the paper carefully, let sit for about 30 seconds before taking a straight edge to scrap away the excess shaving cream. THe paint stays, the shaving cream doesn’t. We did a couple rounds of color combos.
Definitely a fun project to do again…especially for play dates and the rain/snow days we have coming up he is season. And, bonus, Sammie’s teacher loved her feather and wants to try thisi painting method in her classroom.
