With Easter approaching, we have actually been busy crafting and making cute little cards for family that lives in the US. I love giving the kids open-ended craft projects and trying new techniques for creating art. We haven’t tried painting with shaving foam yet, so I thought we could try it out on our Easter cards! Here’s our cute (and oh so easy) Easter egg craft!

Easter Egg Craft for Kids

We had so much fun exploring colors, painting, and just exploring the fun texture of the paint. Even N (one-year-old) was able to participate – with a lot of supervision.

Painting with the foam gave a really neat effect on the paper! The kids were both really intrigued by the way the colors blended together on the foam.

What you need:

  • Shaving foam OR whipped cream
  • Tub
  • Food coloring
  • Paper (cut into the shape of an egg)
  • A butter knife
  • Optional: assorted craft goodies, such as stickers.

How to set up your Easter Egg Craft

  • First, add the foam to your tub.
  • Next, drop in the food coloring randomly.
  • Dip the paper onto the foam.
  • Let dry for a few hours.
  • Scrape the foam off of the paper.
  • Admire your creation or add some embellishments.

Y added the food coloring himself. He was really excited to see the colors mixing together. He grabbed a brush to make more colors!

Even Natasha was excited to mix the paint and explore the texture. I did have to really pay attention to what she was doing because I really didn’t want the paint going everywhere or that she would try to eat it. Luckily, we kept all of the foam paint in the tub!

After scraping off the foam, you get a really lovely watercolor effect on the paper! I thought it was really neat to see, but the kids thought it was the neatest thing!
