Sensory Rainbow Writing

This cool craft is the perfect activity for kids through good old shaving cream with a rainbow twist. Who doesn’t enjoy a bright and colorful rainbow activity!? Not only great for sensory input, but this activity also sneaks in some fine motor practice.

You’ll Need:

  • Baking Tray
  • Aluminium Foil
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Shaving Cream
  • Cotton Buds (optional)


1. Tightly cover a baking tray with foil and paint rainbow colors using acrylic paint. Really great opportunity for your child to get some fine motor skills practice here too, especially with wrapping the foil around the pan.

2. Once the paint has dried, layer the sheet with shaving cream. And that’s really it! Have your child begin writing with their fingers, create fun designs, draw, and the like.

Let us now how you liked this quick, beautifully messy play idea!
