Art Project: Foam Paint
heavy cardstock or light cardboard
I ain't gonna paint no more! / Beaumont, Karen
To wrap up our summer painting series, I thought I'd pull out a new product to try out-- FOAM PAINT!
What Kids Do:
poke the paint.
--This paint does have a tendency to stain hands until they're washed with soap and water, then it mostly comes off.
--This is a fairly quick project (most kids were ready to move on to other activities fairly quickly).
Variations to try:This is similar to shaving cream and food coloring, but easier clean up (less soapy). It also squishes down to just being paint quicker than shaving cream. They're different, but similar.
Adult Challenge: Observe your child's demeanor. Are they proud? Frustrated? Bored? That's your clue as to how they feel about the art they're creating. Respond to their emotion instead of responding to whatever designs they've created.
