Marble Paper!

Day 2 of the week - The theme this week is painting!
Project - Marbled Paper - Cover a baking sheet with half-inch layer of shaving cream. Smooth it out. Dot the cream with drops of food coloring, then use a craft stick to swirl it in the cream. Lay a sheet of card stock on top of the shaving cream and press lightly or firmly!! Peel off the paper and remove the excess shaving cream - we used a paper towel to remove the excess. (Source: Family Fun Magazine August 2009) Materials Needed: baking sheet with rim, shaving cream, food coloring, craft stick, card stock, paper towel.
