Step 1- Spray:
Let your kids spray the having cream into the box you will be painting in. Make sure to spray enough to cover the bottom of the box and about 1-2 inches high.
Drizzle the paint on top of the shaving cream. Use your craft stick or popsicle stick to mix the paint into the shaving cream in a horizontal and vertical fashion. This should make a really cool swirl effect.
Cut your white cardstock into egg shapes (large ovals) or any other shapes you kids want. You can cut flowers, animals, or even the letters of their name.
Step 4- Press:
Press the cut cardstock onto the top of the paint/shaving cream in the box. Press firmly around all the edges of the paper and pull up carefully.
Step 5- Reveal:
Use the craft stick to press onto the cardstock and scrape the excess shaving cream off the paper. Repeat and scrape off until all the shaving cream is gone revealing the marble print on the paper. Let dry and enjoy!!
