Spring Art and Craft for Preschoolers (Spring Flower Shaving Cream Painting)

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.

Spring where are you? Searching for spring art and crafts for preschoolers activities that are fun and easy and art? My daughter loved this Spring Flower Shaving Cream Paining. I am currently trying to figure out how to preserve her art.

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.

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.

I take a picture of each art project & make a bound photo album (using an online service such as Snapfish or Shutterfly) with dates & details of each piece. One book/child. I try to do it on a weekly basis so it doesn't become overwhelming. Then, when we have our annual piano recital, we also have an Art Show. All the original art is displayed. The children each pick out about 3 pieces ahead of time that they get to keep & we put a "Reserve" tag on those pieces. Guests are told they can take any of the non-Reserved pieces they would like. The children are presented with their photo albums at the art show / recital. We have done this for the past 4 years and it is an event that we all look forward to. Any left-over flat pieces (paintings, drawings, etc) are used to write letters or thank-you cards on. Any 3-D pieces that are left are kept or tossed depending on condition or saved to give as gifts to out of town grandparents who could not come to the art show / recital.

That sounds brilliant!! But why 3 pieces only? Do they put them up in their rooms?
