How to make shaving cream paint
I first heard about the magic of shaving cream paint from my preschool teacher friend, Annie. For the record, she calls shaving cream paint 3D puff paint. The directions below will make 1 paper plate polar bear.
Step 1- Add shaving cream
To make one polar bear, add half a bottle of shaving cream to a large plastic or aluminum mixing bowl. There is nothing wrong with a glass bowl, I just don’t recommend it since- kids!
Step 2- Add glue & stir
Next, add a half bottle of glue to the shaving cream. The measurements fo not need to be exact. Use the popsicle stick to mix up the concoction. Don’t over stir, you want the shaving cream to maintain its fluffiness. Now is the time to add food coloring if colored shaving cream paint is what you’re looking for!
Step 3- Scoop
Use the popsicle stick to scoop the paint on to the paper plate. Scoop until the paper plate is covered with puffy paint.
Step 4- Decorate
- Vanilla ice cream
