Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, regrettably we are unable to invite parents into school for a tour of Berkswich CE primary and nursery. We understand that choosing the right setting for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your child’s learning journey. With this in mind, we hope to provide you with a range of opportunities to allow you to gain an insight into life as part of our special Berkswich community and the chance to ask questions. We certainly welcome the opportunity to support and reassure you as you organise your child’s first steps into Nursery and Reception. We are offering virtual meetings to provide an opportunity for new parents to meet our headteacher, EYFS leader and teaching staff. This will provide a great opportunity for you to ask questions and find out about our community and learning at Berkswich CE. Your child is a vital part of this process, and so we welcome them to join in with the meeting.

Shaving Cream Marbling

Shaving Cream Marbling



You will need:

  • Shaving cream
  • Shallow container
  • Paint
  • Something to use as a scraper (e.g. piece of cardboard or ruler) 
  • Card or paper cut into halves or quarters


Step 1. Spray shaving cream

Spray shaving cream into your dish then smooth the surface a bit with a spatula (or spoon, hands, etc).


Step 2. Drop paint on shaving cream

Use a dropper or paintbrush to transfer the liquid paint to the surface of the shaving cream.


Step 3. Swirl the colours

Swirl the colours together to create a marbled effect. 



Step 4. Put paper on shaving cream

Lay a piece of paper on the surface of the painted shaving cream.



Step 5. Lift paper

Gently lift the paper off of the shaving cream.



Step 6. Scrape shaving cream

Scrape the shaving cream off the paper with a craft stick or a piece of cardboard.



Step 7. Dry

Set paper aside to dry and repeat with more prints!



You can make several prints each time you add paint to the shaving cream. And you can add more colour to existing coloured shaving cream. When you’re ready for a clean slate, you can either add a new layer of shaving cream to the top (as shown) or scoop the coloured shaving cream out and start fresh.
