Shaving Cream Marbling

This has to be one of Bub's most favourite craft in a while, so much that we've done it a few times now. It's a fantastic sensory plus fun experience.

You'll need:
  • Watercolour paper (normal paper will get too soggy)
  • Shaving cream (again, Tesco's my favourite because of the price)
  • Liquid watercolours/food colouring
  • Ruler
  • Toothpick 

Start by squeezing shaving cream all over a tray or large dish.

Drop some of the watercolours into the shaving cream.

Use a toothpick to swirl them around. For some reason, it always reminds me of marbled cheesecake and I crave a slice or two at this point.

Carefully press the paper onto the coloured and swirled shaving cream.

Immediately scrape the shaving cream off the paper using a ruler.

You'll end up with a one of a kind marbled paper.

We used them as gift tags and bookmarks. It's coated slightly and drawing on them with markers is a bit difficult so we wrote lil notes on the back of them.
