Art with Colored Shaving Cream


The students use different textures and mediums to paint with.


  • shaving cream
  • washable finger paint
  • plastic spoons, for stirring
  • bowls
  • paper
  • painting smocks for each child
  • paintbrushes

Lesson Plan:

  1. Put a 1/2 cup of shaving cream in a bowl
  2. Add 1 teaspoon of washable liquid paint.
  3. Stir with plastic spoon and leave out for kids.
  4. Put several paint brushes in every color you make.
  5. Remind the kids to keep the paint brushes in the correct color of paint.
  6. Now have the kids put on their paint smocks and get a piece of paper to paint on. They can paint whatever they want or they can be given a theme such as paint the people in your family or paint your favorite toy or paint your house!
  7. Let the pictures dry, and then write a simple sentence at the bottom telling their parents what they painted!


You could also have them print their name if they are trying to learn to write their name!!!
