Looking for some fun spring art and craft for preschoolers projects? Then keep reading.
As I said last week when I shared our Spring (flowers) Garden preschool sensory activity, we are longing for Spring to get here. To be honest, I would be happy with even single-digit temperatures below zero.
Continuing with our Spring flowers theme, today I am going to share with you one of J’s spring art and craft for preschoolers activities that I absolutely adore. I love it so much that I took tons of pics and I am now researching how to preserve it. Let’s walk.
My daughter J has been expressing herself through art lately. She loves to draw rainbows as well as family members and they all have a story.
I really wanted an activity that would not only be fun but to develop her fine motor skills as well and if I can throw in a sensory aspect then that would be a bonus. I figured, hey she loves to draw- maybe she will like painting.
Spring Art and Craft for Preschoolers: Shaving Cream Painting

Once I decided that painting was the activity of the hour, I decided to grab our paints. Once I went to the art bin I looked upon the bookshelf and saw 150+ Screen-Free Activities for Kids. I went directly to the contents to see if there were any activities/ recipes for paints. What caught my attention? SHAVING CREAM PAINT!!!!

How We Created our Spring Preschool
Art and Craft Project
I quickly followed the easy and simple directions in the book to make my paint and I even added a few drops of peppermint to the red paint. (My daughter LOVES smelling things)
Once the paint mixture was completed, I grabbed her easel and set up her painting area. The picture that she painted is from the FREE Spring Flower pack that I created.
