Foam paint can be creative and fun!

DIY foam paint

What’s needed:

  • 3 cups of shaving cream (foam not gel)
  • 1 cup of flour
  • Food coloring or paint
  • A Ziploc sandwich bag
  • Sturdy paper or board (paper plates, cardboard, watercolor paper, poster board)
  • Mix together flour, shaving cream, and glue (don’t over mix; there should still be bubbles in the shaving cream)
  • Divide the mixture into 3-4 small bowls and add the coloring of choice
  • Spoon the puff paint into the Ziploc bags and cut a small hole in one of the corners
  • Squeeze the paint onto a sturdy board in any way that will make your masterpiece
  • Let the art sit overnight; it gets puffier the longer it sets
