Sam really enjoyed our shaving foam painting experiement. The method means that there's always a certain amount of excitment about how the painting will turn out!
You will need:
Watercolour paint in various colours and shades
Lolly stick or skewer
Thick scrap card (old box)
Fill a tray with shaving foam. This is definitely fun!

Squeezing on some paint
Use a stick or skewer to gently move around the paint to create swirls and patterns.
Press a sheet of paper on top.

Peel off and use scrap card to scrape off the foam. As this will further spread the paint, scrape from the middle to the sides.
