Kirkwood Public Library Presents Kids Activity of the Day – Marbled Shaving Cream Art

Fill a shallow cookie sheet or pan with shaving cream. Drop food coloring or bits of paint on shaving cream and swirl with a toothpick or knife. Firmly press a piece of paper onto the shaving cream and then peel away. Scrape off excess shaving cream over the sink or trash can to reveal your art.
