Shaving Cream Fireworks

Let's celebrate with these spectacular colourful fireworks! Easy to make and it's messy and fun!

Materials Needed:

What to do:

  • Filling up the pan with shaving cream.
  • Use stiff paper or cardboard to smooth out the shaving cream.
  • Drop food colouring in dots all over the shaving cream
  • Take a toothpick and start in the centre drawing straight out, like the rays on the sun.
  • When all the fireworks are done, lay the paper on the shaving cream and pat very gently to make a print.
  • Gently peel the paper off the shaving cream.
  • Use the clean side of your stiff paper or cardboard to scrape off the excess shaving cream from the paper.
  • Your firework print is now ready.

Hints and Tips:

  • Use different coloured food colouring.
  • Paint can be used instead of food colouring
  • Try using a fork to get a different firework effect.
