Mix the colors gently swirling with a fork , spoon handle or chop stick. If you have tooth picks that might be fun too!
Lay a piece of paper on top very gently, or use lightweight cardboard (side of cereal box will do!)

You can use a butter knife or icing tool to help your child scrape off the excess shaving cream by starting at one end of the painting and making a downared motion with the tool being used.Changes to the original design will occur with this technique, which will be a surprise for your child.Fun!
Shapes such as butterflies can be created after the shaving cream has dried!
