Smiling like Sunshine: Marbled shaving foam

Marbled shaving foam

Although I have been quite keen to do marble painting with shaving foam, somehow we just couldn't get round to it. A few days ago my sister  said they have done marble painting with her two-year old and then I saw it on Irresistable Ideas for play based learning. So today was the day :)
D.  loves playing with shaving foam. She got really excited when I prepared the needed items:

Then she squirted some food coloring

and stirred it ~ this was great fun

Then she pressed a paper on the foam and voila!

She made quite a few pictures adding more colours every time and in the end the foam was like this and she said "look mummy, I made chocolate pudding" :)
Then we cleaned the tray and started again.This time the result was this:

Normally you are supposed to scrape off the excess foam with a brush but she didn't want to do that, which is perfectly okay.
