Shaving Cream Marbelized Mister Sea Horse Craft (Eric Carle)

I love the book Mister Seahorse by Eric Carle and the Lil Divas enjoy the overlays and illustrations in the story. I hadn't expected to do another activity to go with this particular story (we were just re-reading it for fun) but I was inspired by the illustrations to make our own funky seahorses by using marbelized shaving cream.

 Shaving Cream Marbelized Seahorses


What You Need:
shaving cream
paint
shallow dish/container
seahorse cut out

What To Do:
1. Pour shaving cream onto your dish/plate/container.
2. Add paint (I keep it at 3-4 colors for best results)


3. Swirl gently


4. Place cut-out on top of shaving cream and press gently to ensure it is covered with your mixture.


5. Lift and let sit for a few minutes

6. Use a plastic lid, napkin, index card or squeegee to remove excess shaving cream.


That's it - check out what a marvelous result you got!
