Shaving Foam Marbled Hearts

Traditional marbling is fun but, with the oil paints involved, not at all suitable for younger children. Marbling with shaving foam is a great alternative - and so much fun!

Cut hearts from the card.  

Press the card hearts onto the shaving foam. Press down to make sure as much of the card comes in contact with the paint, but don't get carried away!

Lift up and scrape off any shaving foam. Leave to dry.
