Shaving Cream Notecards

 Amy was a wonderful big sister today and planned a fun craft to do with the little kids:  shaving cream painted notecards.
All you need is:
shaving cream
cake pan
spoons and forks
index cards
liquid watercolors (I use Color Splash Watercolors)
 We added about a tablespoon of watercolor into 1/4 cups of water.
Put a generous amount of shaving cream into a cake pan.
 Spoon (or use a medicine dropper) to drop color onto the shaving cream.
 We were quite generous with the color.
 Drag forks through the shaving cream...gently mixing the colors.
 Place the index cards onto the shaving down very lightly.
 Lift the cards off the shaving cream.

 Now take a ruler and rub the shaving cream off the card. 
The colors are amazing....This photo doesn't do them justice.
It's pretty messy business.
Allow your cards to dry and then get busy and write notes to your friends.
