Shaving Cream Fun Peacocks!

This week, second graders are finishing their marbleized peacock paintings. It has been so fun to watch their reactions to the shaving cream which is a HUGE crowd pleaser! We made the heads the first week with markers and painted the middle with sparkly water. The eyes and beaks were colored with oil pastels.

Here is a link to the marbleizing directions HERE

 We made the head the first week and the spots the second week 

 they used black crayons to draw the spots, then colored them with markers. They used sparkly water to paint the markers. I have been putting glitter glaze or glitter paint in the paint water, when we paint markers. The kids LOVE being surprised by the sparkles


I have had many people ask about the liquid watercolor. Here is a quick link to the brand that I use if you want to get some. They are AWESOME!
