We marbled some paper to make Christmas Cards, it’s a simple craft and very beautiful.
Simply fill a cookie tray with shaving cream, then dribble paint or food coloring (we used paint in red and green) over the top. With a toothpick you can swirl it around a bit.
Another fun project we did was growing snowy trees
What you need – Water, Salt, Ammonia, Mrs. Stewart’s Bluing (I found it at the drug store)
Dissolve 6T salt into 6T water, add 6T bluing and 1T ammonia in a shallow dish.
Then you can do 1 of 2 things, place a sponge (cut into the desired shape) in the solution OR cut an object from cardboard. (we used cardboard). Place either object into the solution and wait, within a day crystals will have started to form.
To add color to your crystals…drop food coloring onto the object. We kept ours to be white, like snow.
