Playing with chalk on a beautiful day outside is fun, but have you ever played with foam paint? Summer fun is getting kicked up a notch. Did we mention it’s even fun to clean up afterwards?
What you’ll need:
- Two 4 oz. bottles of washable school glue
- 1 cup of white flour
- 4-5 cups of plain white shaving foam
- Food coloring
- 1-gallon plastic zipper bag
- Sandwich-sized plastic zipper bags (1 per color)
- Plastic squirt bottles (optional)
- Add a cup of flour to the gallon-size plastic bag.
- Pour both bottles of washable school glue into the bag with the flour.
- Mix the glue and flour up somewhat so the flour doesn’t get stuck in the corners.
- Spray approximately 4-5 cups worth of shaving foam into the bag.
- Close the bag and knead it for a few minutes so everything is thoroughly mixed together.
- Snip a corner of the gallon-size plastic bag and squirt into sandwich-sized plastic zipper bags to divide up the colors. The number of different colors you want is how many sandwich bags you will need.
- Add 10 drops of food coloring to each bag.
- Kneed each smaller bag so the coloring is mixed throughout.
- Snip off a tiny corner of the small bags to use to paint, or squirt the mix into a plastic squirt bottle and you’re ready to paint!
Your creations will be easy to clean-up with a garden hose, and your kids will never run out of space to color and create!
