::shaving cream is always fun::

Shaving cream is always fun.

We wanted to try out this craft for the up coming art party.
It was simple to make. 
Spread the shaving cream on a cookie sheet.

Add a few drops of food coloring.
See the stick in the upped corner?
We used it to move the coloring around.
Or you could just use your hands like Miss Lily had to.  
Take a piece of card stock and press it straight down onto the shaving cream.

We used an unused old linoleum tile to scrap off the extra shaving cream on the paper. 
Then just let it dry for a few minutes.
Lastly, the girls decided to take it a step further and cut out designs from their prints.

Here is how Emma cut her pages out.

And here is what Lily did with hers.  

And here is what the littlest Schaefer did while his sisters were working on their projects.
