Perfect for all ages. Even the adults can get in on this one. It's one of those ones that you will want to put in a frame rather in the folder of artworks.

Prep Time: 2 minutes
Activity time: 4 minutes to ongoing depending on paper supply!
Age:Toddlers to school ages children
Level: Easy but might need some assistance with little ones.

Materials
Any cheap shaving foam
Variety of food colouring dyes
Skewer /pencil/paintbrush
Cookie tray ( not used for food)
Paper

Method
Spray an even layer of shave foam in to the cookie tray about 1cm deep. Little hands might need some help with this.
Drop or blob food colouring across the foam.



Use the skewer to swirl the colours around (we used a paintbrush).




Lie paper on top of the foam and gently tap so that all the paper makes contact with the foam.



Carefully lift paper and lie out flat to dry.




Once completely dry the foam will be gone and you are left with a beautiful masterpiece.
