Welcome back to another Outdoor Play Party! This week we did a little shaving foam painting in the chilly sunshine. A little messy, but a fun sensory way to paint.
Little Dude enjoyed this craft, although Champ did join in later. I made the 'paint' with shaving foam and food colouring, which wasn't very vibrant - in fact I basically managed to make off white and grey! But, it was something a bit different as it stayed all puffy.
We started off with paint brushes, but it's so fluffy that this isn't what you want to use if you're trying to create anything you'd want to frame later!
We did manage to make a few interesting shapes and patterns, but it was definitely more about process than product!
Then, of course, we went for fingers and hands got stuck in and squidged the paint everywhere.
When Little Dude started to shiver we moved inside and I squirted a bit of real paint into the mix. It made the paint way more vibrant and made for much more interesting pictures so I think we'd go with that method next time!
