Time: 15 minutes
Age: Under 5's
Level: Easy, Medium, Hard

Tray with sides
Shaving foam (just get the cheapest from the supermarket)
Chopstick or paintbrush
Length of cardboard (as long as the width of your paper, a piece of cereal packet works well)

Spray shaving foam into a tray until you cover the

Fill your tray with shaving foam

Add some large splodges of paint.

You might need to add more paint if it doesn't look enough

Using a chop stick or the end of a paintbrush, let your child swish it around, mixing the paint through the shaving foam.
