What You’ll Need
Food coloring (blue, red, yellow)
What to Do
Place shaving cream in middle of pan and thin it by adding about 1/4 cup of water.
Add 1-2 drops of blue and yellow food coloring. Stir with a spoon.
Let your child use her fingers to make shapes, animals, or just have fun letting her fingers swirl around in the mixture.
Extend the Fun
Ask your child what she thinks will happen when you mix the colors? Next time, try mixing blue and red.
What other shapes can your child make? Try making the letters in his name or the numbers of your home address.
