Shaving Cream Art

Create Unique One of a Kind Art with Shaving Cream.

Shaving Cream Art is a fun project that the whole family can participate in.

How to Create Shaving Cream Art

Materials Needed:

I use the Deflecto Stackable Caddy Organizer* to hold my ink refills and other crafty supplies.

Shaving Cream Art can get a little messy so a little prep work is necessary.

  • For easy clean up…Place a piece of wax paper* over a large baking sheet.
  • Add shaving cream onto wax paper.
  • Add several drops of ink onto the shaving cream.

  • Use a craft stick* to swirl the ink into the shaving cream.
  • Do not over stir or the shaving cream will become muddy.

  • Place card-stock directly onto the shaving cream and lightly Smoosh.

  • Carefully lift the card-stock from the shaving cream.

  • Use the scraper tool* to scrape the excess shaving cream from the card-stock.

  • Without re-stirring the shaving cream, you can repeat the process several more times.
  • The first one will be the most vibrant and will get subtly lighter each time.

Each one will be different and will lighten as they dry.

You can use this process to create even larger pieces of art. 

Shaving Cream Art also makes a great background for card-makers.

Nick and Warren and the December Orange Art Box

Nick and Warren and the December Orange Art Box

It’s always fun crafting with these two monkeys.  Always a lot of silliness and smiles.

When we finally got a chance to work on the December Box, I had picked them up right after

they got off the school bus.  They were especially wound up.

I had to threaten Warren that he couldn’t be in the video if he wouldn’t stop

talking about naked bellies and of course showing me.

Then once we got going he gave me a sweet little song included at the end of the video.

Another Bonus…

I get to give away a Orange Art Box to one lucky kid.  (details at the bottom of this post)

Please enjoy our cheesy little video.

The December Orange Art Box was all about “Artic Friends”.

The December Orange Art Box included modeling clay, markers, card kits, postcards, bookmarks, glue, yarn to make tassels, and an instruction book that show the kids how to draw and make the animals.

End of the Summer Crafting with Kids

End of the Summer Crafting with Kids

With school starting last week and our hanging out time limited, I grabbed my grandsons

for a end of summer craft day.  We needed a craft day.  (and a little swim time too)

We had got our August Orange Art Box earlier in the month and hadn’t found the time

to work on it yet.  (yesterday was the perfect day)

Kids love to make things and get messy.  (And this box was a fun one.)

In my workshop, I have a long kid sized table and chairs that I picked up a few years ago

at a church sale aka “The Sunday School Table” which is perfect for crafting with the boys.

(FYI…until I get my new craft room completely finished, I’ve been crafting there myself.)

We painted kindness rocks…  

made picture frames and games. 

Everything was included in the Orange Art Box kit.

All I had to do is clear off a table and pour some water for washing brushes.

The boys couldn’t wait to start painting.

Nick was inspired to make a game board of his own.   (which I’ll laminate for him)

I love to see creativity at work and spending time with my grandsons is an extra added bonus.

Crafting with Kids…all about bugs

BUZZIN’ BUGS

The summer crafting adventures continue with Nick and Warren and the July Orange Art Box.

This months box is all about Bugs and I do believe it was Warren’s favorite box.

The kit came with supplies to make a bug jar, cute little felt bugs, bug stencils, stickers,

paper to make a bug book, plastic bugs, markers and several other fun crafty supplies.

Check out the boys video and the July Orange Art Box.  

(I’m starting to wonder if I should include their bloopers.  Never a dull moment.)

So…If you are looking for something different for your kids to do this summer

you might want to look into the Orange Art Box.

It’s available to purchase as a 1, 3, 6 or 12 month subscription.

Perfect gift for that budding artist.

June Orange Art Box

Nick’s back with a fun project using the June Orange Art Box.

I think this month’s kit has been our favorite Orange Art Box so far.

The theme for the June Box is “Under the Sea” and Nick had a really fun

time creating his fish inspired Shadow Box.

Check out Nick’s video below.

The Orange Art Box

Looking for something to keep the kids busy this summer and end the “I’m bored”.

I was recently introduced to the Orange Art Box which is an Art Subscription Box for Kids.

As you might know…I love doing crafts with my grandsons

and because the box is geared for kids ages 5-12, it was right up our alley.

I was so impressed with the concept that I’ve agreed to do a monthly post with the boys for the

next few months using the products we receive in each month’s kit.

With Summer Vacation around the corner it’s a perfect activity to keep the boys busy.

***Make sure to read to the bottom for a chance to win the May Orange Art Box.***

What’s inside the Orange Art Box?

A collection of projects every month to inspire your artist.

Every Orange Art Box is designed with a feature project and multiple smaller projects

for hours of fun!

The boys and I did a short video of them opening their Orange Art Boxes.

It was seriously like opening a Christmas Gift.

You may notice in the video that they were just a little bit excited.

The theme for April was Mosaics…the April Orange Art Box included a wooden box, a large bag of mosaics, mod podge, brush, book mark, door knob hanger, tissue paper squares, 6 color scented pen and a folder of ideas, tips, patterns and instructions.

Enough projects to keep them busy for quite a while.

The boys all time favorite item was the six color “smelly” pen.   

The first thing they wanted to do was work on their boxes.   

It’s fun to see their creative minds at work.

I really think this will be a fun summer activity for the boys.

Tie Dyed Emoji Socks

Looking for a fun Summer project to do with the kids?

How about one of a kind Tie-Dyed Emoji socks?

This kids are going to love this!

To make the Tie-Dyed Emoji Socks this is what you’ll need…

I tried three different ways to dye my socks.

  • First, I just squirted dye directly onto the socks.  (red and blue pair)
  • Next, I rubber banded two socks together.  (yellowish pair)
  • Then, I tried rubber banding the socks separately.  (purplish  pair)

I think I like the socks rubber banded together best.  (yellowish pair)

To Dye the Socks…

  1. Add water to the pre-measured squirt bottles.
  2. Rubber-band socks and apply dye.
  3. Let set for 6-8 hours, then rinse – waiting is the hardest part!
  4. Make sure to wear gloves!  (I didn’t)
  5. Wash and Dry socks.

6.  Iron On Emoji patches on opposite sides of the socks.    Very COOL Socks!

The Tie-Dyed Emoji Socks were created for and sponsored by Joy.
