Shaving Cream Hearts

I have seen many different heart craft ideas perfect for this time of year. One that caught my eye that kept popping up on Pinterest was shaving cream hearts. I never clicked on a link to see the variations of this activity, but I instantly knew how I wanted to do ours.

I started with a pie pan (I used glass rather than disposable, shaving cream (we used less than 1/4 of the can), and food coloring (pink, red, and purple). We sprayed a light layer of shaving cream in the pie pan and then put food coloring on top of the shaving cream. Using paper shaped hearts (found at Michael's), we lightly smashed the hearts into the shaving cream. These were our results:

 The cats got into the drying hearts and made a mess of the counters!

Hours later, after the minis got home from school, they wanted to give it a try. The shaving cream had gotten foamier and the food coloring deeper, giving round 2 of shaving cream hearts a different appearance.

The minis played with the shaving cream and then smashed in one last heart just to see how it would turn out.

Our results left to right: round one (shaving cream and food coloring fresh), round two (shaving cream and food coloring sitting out for 6+ hours), and lastly, shaving cream and food coloring mixed together.

I LOVED the outcome of our Shaving Cream Hearts and the kids enjoyed making them too!
