All the kids and adults (ages 18 mos + moms and dads and grammies alike lol) loved it. It was very cool. Maybe this is old hat, but I hadn't seen it before. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
On a hard surface or tray, spray white shaving cream, any size, depending on your paper. Drip dots of food colors (or water colors) over the foam. Take a pen or chopstick or end of a thin paint brush and gently swirl the colors. Then take a piece of card stock, or other paper (copy paper is fine) and press down. Peel off. Take a pice of carboard and scrap off the foam in swoops until the shaving cream is removed.<br><br>
No matter what you swirl with the chipsticks or what colors you choose, it will be gorgeous.

That sounds very cool!<br><br>
I just googled and found some good instructions; looks like we'll be doing this during the summer! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

That's exactly it! I didn't explain too badly, either. lol<br><br>
They were gorgeous, all of them. the effect is just as lovely with a light teen hand as it is with a heavy toddler hand. (Different effect, for sure) . Some of us pressed down the paper & peeled off quicky for the toddlers, and then let the little kids back right back into the foam. Some kids (and olders) enjoyed the sensory experience for quite a long time.

<div style="font-style:italic;">That's totally cool!! We're going to try it today ... what could I use in place of a plastic squeegee? Spatula?</div>

Our group used pieces of firm cardboard. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> I'm sure a spatula will work.
