Grab a can of shaving cream and try your hand at Splatter Paint Monoprinting! One of our messiest projects yet!
Last week we were honoured to guest on the lovely Meri Cherry’s blog! We shared a super sensory activity, Valentines Day Splatter Paint Hearts with shaving cream, paint and a rubber mallet. Three of our favourite crafty supplies!
We did it again, this time with a little twist! Instead of splatting directly onto paper, we pressed paper onto the shaving cream-painty splats, leaving us with some awesome mono prints!
An easy (and messy) printmaking activity for kids!
Washable Kids Paint
Plastic Tablecloth (or cheap plastic shower curtain)
Step 1. Prepare your area (outside, of course) by laying down a few plastic table cloth sheets. The table cloths will capture the brunt of it; but I’ll put money on you finding shaving cream and paint splatters meters away in every direction.
Step 2. Squirt blobs of paint over your table cloth and then cover each blob with a good squirt of shaving cream!
Step 3. Swing & splat! Our favourite part! The boys carefully stepped between each landmine, picking a mountain of shaving cream & took a guess as to which colour might explode from under.
Step 4. Once every landmine has been detonated, take your cardstock sheet and press it onto a section of your painty table cloth. Lift it up and allow to dry in the sun. (This can take a good few hours!) Once its dry, you’ll be left with a colourful page of textured paint splatters!
They boys were dying to get their feet (& inevitably their bodies) into all the shaving cream & painty goodness! A fun way to finish off a super sensory activity! Are you brave enough??
Clean up is as easy as hosing down the ground (and the kids) and binning the plastic table cloth.
