Shaving Cream Easter Egg Banner

The kids had so much fun making this Easter egg banner (and playing with the shaving cream)!  This idea came from Little Wonders' Days blog.  Here are the steps:

  1. Get your supplies ready: eggs cut from cardstock (I used my Silhouette), dish, shaving cream, acrylic paints, dull knife, and paper towels.
  2. Fill the dishes with shaving cream.  Add acrylic paint in rows.  Have your child gently swirl the colors together with a dull knife.  Not too much swirling!
  3. Next press the cardstock eggs onto the swirled paint shaving cream.
  4. Gently peel up and lay on paper towels to dry for a few minutes.
  5. After the eggs have dried for about 15 minutes, use the dull knife to gently scrape off the shaving cream, leaving the paint behind on the cardstock.  Let dry completely.
  6. Here is the finished product!
  7. I used the eggs we made to assemble an Easter egg banner.  I hung pink ribbon and attached the eggs with small pink clothespins.  I hung the banner in the playroom over the kids' Easter/spring art work.  I love it!  (You could also use these as cards to give to friends and family.)
