- black and white cardstock paper (12-inch by 12-inch size)
- acrylic paint in several colors
- shaving cream
- 3 foil containers (we found ours at Dollar Tree $1 for a pack of 4)
- rubber spatula
- gold glitter glue
- sponge brush or paint brush
- glue stick
2. Squirt shaving cream into your foil containers, enough to fill the bottom of the pans. Use your rubber spatula to spread the shaving cream out evenly and make it as smooth as you can.
3. Squirt various colors of acrylic paint onto your shaving cream. We do lines in various directions. Use your toothpick to make lines up and down, side to side and diagonally to create a marbled look in your paint.
4. Press your circle down into the paint and lightly rub all over the circle to get the shaving cream to stick to the entire circle. Carefully remove the circle from the paint and let it sit for 1-2 minutes. Use your squeegee to remove the shaving cream from your circle. You are left with a beautiful marbled planet.
5. Glue your planets onto your black cardstock paper.
This post is part of a collaborative preschool series where five bloggers and myself have joined together to bring you fun crafts and activities based on a common preschool learning theme. This week we are sharing ideas focused on space and solar system.
