This dough is very easy to make and my kids love it. It's even kinda cold when you are working with it. My daughter loves making snowmen with her dough. It's a big hit.
Total Time: 5 minutes
Yield: About 4 cups.
- 4 cups of baking soda
- 6 oz (1/2 of a 12 ounce can) of shaving cream
I got my shaving cream from the Dollar store.
- Fill a bowl with shaving cream. I used about 1/2 of the can and it filled up my bowl.
- Add baking soda. Stir to mix. The consistency is similar to pie dough before you form it into a ball. You may need to add more baking soda or shaving cream to get it how you like it, but it seems pretty forgiving with the measurements.
- Have fun making snowmen and whatever else your kids come up with!
Make colorful artwork using shaving cream and paint. Then transfer them to paper!
Approximate Time: 10 to 15 minutes
- shaving cream
- acrylic paint, in a few bright colors
- old cookie sheet or tray
- white card stock paper
- Spray the shaving cream onto the tray or cookie sheet and spread to the size of the paper you have.
- Next drop some of each color of paint on top of the shaving cream.
- Using toothpicks have your child swirl the colors around in the shaving cream.
- When they are finished creating their colorful artwork, place the card stock paper over top and press gently to make sure it touched all of the paint.

- Next lift up the paper and using the spatula scrap the shaving cream off of the paper.
- The paper should have the colorful designs on in now. Let it dry and you can use the colorful paper for another craft in the future display your child's art work as it is!

My Dad, is on a genealogy kick. He's been going to a lot of old cemeteries, documenting old dates and info for births, deaths, marriages, number of children, etc. One problem he kept having was the dates not coming through on his camera, since the older tombstones turn dark with dirt, mold, etc. Now he carries a can of spray foam men's shaving cream with him, just for this very purpose.Read More...
Mix shaving cream and a tablespoon or so of Kool-Aid to make a tinted, scented finger paint material for small children. A cookie sheet makes a good table on which to mix paint colors and serves as a play surface for the kids to swirl the shaving cream.Read More...
