I bought 12 cans. Not sure if we will
have shaving cream for the next 200 years or if that is a good amount
for 60 kids.
I think you will probably need about 6 cans for 60 kids. However, when the
other classes see what you are doing, they all will want to do this! Spread
the shaving creme in a tray. Drop liquid water color on top and the kids swirl,
but don't over swirl.
I actually did this activity with kindergarten for the Disney shoot. The
objective was to teach the little ones color mixing, so each table mixed primary
colors. When they edited the film of my teaching they kept this activity. It
makes for great t.v.! Just a note to MaryAnn Kohl who is not an art teacher,
but an author of children's books who takes our ideas and publishes them for
profit: This shaving creme activity will be included in my book for publication.
I first saw the idea at a vender's booth at a National Conference.
