If your kids love getting a little messy, then this is a craft they are sure to love. And it’s easy to personalized for different seasons and holidays. Since my little guy is a bit too young for this craft, I made it myself and even though it’s meant for kids, I loved making it! I already have a few ideas brewing of how I can use this technique on a few other craft projects I have planned for spring.
- Shaving Cream
- Card stock
- Tray or box lid
- Paintbrush, toothpick or fork (something with a pointy end)
- Scraper tool or old gift card
I knew I wanted to make Easter eggs to hang up around the house, so using my trusty Silhouette Cameo, I cut out a bunch of different sized eggs from card stock. You could also print out templates of shapes and have the kids practice their tracing and cutting skills!
To get started with the messy part, spray some shaving cream onto your tray and spread it around. I actually used a cookie sheet covered in tin foil which made for a much easier clean-up!
Next take the paint and squirt it all over the shaving cream. I used acrylic paint, but washable tempera paint should also work. I did blobs of paint throughout, but the kiddos could also make lines, squiggles, anything they want really, with the paint.
Hope you love our Shaving Cream Painted Easter Eggs and that you’ll give them a try too!
