I love when I discover an exciting new craft on Pinterest, let alone one that is a resounding success with my toddler as well as with mommy. These are our shaving cream paintings - very easy to create and super beautiful too!

Spread a thin, even layer of standard shaving cream on a baking sheet, and then put drops of food colouring all over it. Use a toothpick or fork to swirl the colours in the shaving cream. Place a thick piece of cardstock on top of the colour and press firmly, and use a plastic spatula to remove the excess shaving cream. Let dry.

We got five paintings from one batch of shaving cream and could have still kept going.

We'd love to see your own creations - be sure to share them in our comments or on our Facebook page!
