    Spray foam shaving cream into an aluminum tray and spread around. Use a craft stick to add washable kids’ paint on top of the shaving cream. Use the craft stick to swirl the paint around the shaving cream. Lay heavy paper on top of the shaving cream and lightly press down on the paper. Lift the paper and lay it onto a piece of recycled newspaper. Use a craft stick to gently scrape off the shaving cream to reveal the colourful swirls of paint on the paper. Set aside to dry. Add more paint or add a second colour and repeat. If you want to change the colour completely, wash out the tray and add a new colour.
