Shaving Cream Art!

Create a marbleized painting using everyday household goods.


  • Large metal baking sheet or plastic tray
  • Paper (works best with white construction paper)
  • Watercolor or liquid food coloring
  • Shaving cream
  • A fork or spoon for mixing
  • A ruler, old spatula, or old credit card to scrape off the shaving cream


  1. Spray shaving cream onto the baking sheet and spread it around.
  2. Scatter tiny drops of food coloring on top of the shaving cream.
  3. Mix the colors around using a fork, spoon, stick, or maybe even drive a toy car or stomp a plastic animal through it.
  4. Gently press the paper on the shaving cream masterpiece.
  5. Lift up the paper, then turn over to see the results. Scrape off the excess shaving cream.
  6. Photograph your creations and share on social media with the hashtag #JMKACcares
