When my two little girls were even littler I used to put shaving foam in a zip lock bag for them to play with. It never held their attention for a huge amount of time, but then I had never thought to put food colouring along side it. It was this which gave me a seed of an idea for some free play during our one hour art time. I filled the zip lock bag with pink (A & B’s favourite colour) food colouring and sprayed in some cheap shaving foam, adding in some extra food colouring at the end. I gave them to the children:
After it was all mixed I snipped a little hole in the corner of the bag and showed them how to empty it, icing a cake style:
I gave the girls some pastry brushes and bath sponges to spread the foam all over the paper:
A4 has been asking all week could she please do the foam thing again. A hit I think!
