Shaving Cream Paint Marbled Artwork

We’ve been having a blast making all sorts of shaving cream works of art! This activity is so simple and doesn’t require much prep work at all and the kids absolutely LOVE it! We love that you can use all those marbled paintings as notecards, room décor, or notebook covers too!

Squirt some paint on top of the shaving cream. We added a few different complementary colors but you can choose as many or as few as you’d like!

The kids really got into swirling the paint! Our pie plan was ‘a spinning!

Place your paper on top of the painted shaving cream and gently press down.

Now for the messy part! Place your paper on a flat surface, shaving cream side up, and squeegee the shaving cream off. Next, move your paper to a clean, dry, and flat location and allow the paper to dry. We discovered watercolor paper worked best, while thinner paper had the tendency to curl more. We also noticed it best to squeegee the paper right away and not let the shaving cream sit on the paper too long.

We loved all the different results we got depending how much swirling of the paint we did, what colors we chose, etc. Have fun and let your imagine run wild!
