Make your own foam paints

 

What you'll need for your foam paints

 
  • White shaving foam
  • Food colouring in multiple colours
  • A muffin tin
  • Paint brushes (or kids little fingers!)
 

How to make your foam paints


1. Fill each space in the muffin tin with a squirt of shaving foam.

2. Add a drop or two of food colouring to each of the squirts of shaving foam. Use a different colour for each squirt of foam.

3. Take the paint brushes (or get your kids to use their fingers) and paint away! It’s that easy!

4. Because the paint dissolves, any remaining paint can be washed away when the kids are finished.

Tip

You might want to add a very small drop of washing up liquid to the mix to help remove the food colouring a little easier from your kids skin once they've finished painting.
