Magic Marbleizing: Fun ART with Children!

This is such a fun project. Don't be afraid of making a mess just try it and you will be amazed how cool it is!
Smooth out about 1 inch of shaving cream onto a flat surface.
Drop food coloring or liquid watercolor onto shaving cream.
Use a toothpick to swirl the color into fun designs.
Press paper lightly onto the shaving cream and pull up.
Scrap excess off with a spatula. Use the same shaving cream for several rounds. The shaving cream acts as a medium to hold the color until you print it. The options are endless! Make cards, abstract art, or just have fun seeing the one of a kind designs that appear. Kids will love the process so let them loose and have fun. Riley's favorite part is squirting the bottle and swirling the colors.
(Warning...fingers may stain for a day or is all worth it though!)
