Keep your kids entertained with creative crafts, like mixing and painting with this homemade foam paint!


  • Shaving cream
  • White school glue
  • Food colouring of your choice
  • Thin cardboard or other semi-rigid canvas material


  • Mix equal parts shaving cream and white school glue in a large ziplock bag. Squish them together well!
  • Add a few drops of the food colouring of your choice and continue to squish everything together until you get your desired colour.
  • Prep whatever cardboard or other material you want to use for your canvas by drawing a scene, some shapes, or some words. Then, cut off a small corner from your ziplock bag and squeeze to form thick lines of foam paint. It’s a bit like using a piping bag for icing! Follow and fill in your design with different colours of foam paint.
  • Once the art has been completed, set aside so the foam can dry and solidify overnight.
