DIY Foam Paint

3 Ingredient DIY Foam Paint – It’s that time of year again. The kids are officially out of school and on summer holidays. Unfortunately our kids were off school 2 weeks early due to a teacher’s strike so I had to be proactive in creating some new summer activities early.  I had a couple of Noelle’s friends over the other day and we were looking for something to do so I decided foam painting may be fun – we’ve never tried that before. I looked up some recipes online and found that I had all the ingredients I need to create this fun concoction.

Making foam paint is as easy as it gets. You’ve got your shaving cream, your craft/school glue and your food coloring – that’s it!

Mix equal parts shaving cream and glue into a ziplock bag, add your desired food coloring and then, with the bag sealed, squish the bag together until all your ingredients are nicely mixed together. Have your little artists create a layout for their design on a semi-rigid material (I used large white cardboard envelopes) and when they’re ready for the foam simply cut off a corner at the bottom of the bag and use like you’re piping icing. Once the art has been completed, set aside so the foam can dry and solidify overnight.

    First of all, thank you for all of the creative projects. Your ideas, among others, kept my hands busy throughout this past winter. But I feel compelled to make comment about how so many of your good
    ideas come as a result of keeping the kids interested and busy.

    How do you determine equal parts glue and shaving cream? Weight? The amount that fits in a cup?
    Does it stay poofy when it dries?

      Hi Lyndsy. Great question. I used volume for mine and it still worked although weight probably makes for sense logically. Yes, it stays poofy when it dries and smells just like shaving cream.

    How long does it last once you make it?
    can I do it the save it if I keep it in the zip lock bags sealed?

    We started with about 1/2 glue to 1 part shaving cream and had good results, too. This was a great way to spend an hour and a half after nap today! My son thanked me and told me it was awesome before heading outside to play with his cars. Thanks!

    What kind of food color did you use? Also, how much puffy paint did this recipe make?

    I just saw your DIY 3 ingredient foam paint and I think this is a great idea. I babysit 3 children and I was wondering if this stains the hands? Because the kids I watch love to make a mess and I would like to make sure I’m not staining the kids before their mom comes home. Thanks

    Could this be used for gnome houses? Roof would be 3 inches all around? Or should we think of something else? Does is shrivel up while drying??
