Painting Clouds

This activity is a blast. It's messy, but clean-up is easy. The hard part is keeping the mixture out of the kids' mouths because it looks a lot like marshmellow fluff. Keep a bucket of soapy water nearby for easy clean-up.Mix together equal parts shaving cream and white school glue. I used 1/2 cup of each and it was enough for 4 kids to make a couple of pictures each. Paint away. (I must admit that Ienjoyed painting way more than the kids did.)
Let dry. It takes several hours but the result is a soft fluffy cloud!

**If you wanted to tie this into a book, you could always read It Looked Like Spillt Milk by George Shaw.
