This is another great easy science experiment that also doubles up as messy play. Messy play allows children to get creative so this activity ticks all the boxes!
All you need is:
- shaving foam
- food colouring
- a spoon
- plain white paper
We always use a tuff spot to conduct our messy play/science experiments as it contains the mess. Check them out here:
First, spray the shaving foam into the middle of the tuff spot. Then drop some different colour food colouring onto the shaving foam. With the end of a spoon, let the children swirl the food colouring into the shaving foam. Once happy with the pattern created, let the children take their piece of paper and place on top of the pattern. Tap down gently, then carefully remove the paper. The pattern on top of the shaving foam should transfer onto the paper to reveal a marble effect painting. Allow the pattern to dry.
