Ziplock Bag Squeezy Foam Painting

Painting Activity for Kids

Pin It

During our GREEN WEEK in the Color of the Week Series, we did a simple color mixing activity where I mixed food coloring with shaving cream in duct taped zip locked bags to let the boys squish and smoosh until  the bag was completely green. See this fun activity HERE!

I then let the shaving cream sit for a day in the bags which I know from other shaving cream projects, makes a really cool foam! I tied the bags off with rubber bands and then snipped a little hole on one of the ends for the boys to squeeze out the foam!

I let my little one (19 mo) try squeezing the bag himself but he didn't really get the concept of the point of it, so I squeezed it for him! This bag wasn't quite so foamy since it hadn't been sitting as long. It came out like shaving cream from a can which B was pretty fascinated with!

We are going to try this RAINBOW STYLE in the next few days, so be on the lookout!

More Ways to Follow the Fun!


  1. Does the food coloring stain clothes or other household items?

  2. Excellent participation of foam material on the basis of how concrete can use with different chemicals has been given here to expand the best creation of secure building material. Thanks for this recent technical renovation.
