DIY Foam Panting

2nd Apr, 2020

Making foam paint is as easy as it gets. You’ve got your shaving cream, your craft/school glue and your food colouring – that’s it!

  1. Mix equal parts shaving cream and glue into a Ziplock bag, add your desired food colouring and then, with the bag sealed, squish the bag together until all your ingredients are nicely mixed together.
  2. Have your kids create a layout for their design on a semi-rigid material (think white card or hard cardboard envelope)
  3. when they’re ready for the foam simply cut off a corner at the bottom of the bag and use like you’re piping icing.
  4. Once the art has been completed, set aside so the foam can dry and solidify overnight.
