Milk Mustaches

In honor of Milk Day (yes, you read right), the boys and I came up with a fun and silly craft.  I took photos of TnT's faces, plus their dad's too.  We printed them in black and white, and then used crayon to color in the eyes, eyebrows, and hair.

The photo on the left has some of the crayon added to it.

Next, I sprayed some plain white shaving cream onto a paper plate and let the boys use it as their milk medium.  They really enjoyed squishing it around, as well as creating their own signature looks.

Here are the finished products!  They have already asked for me to print out more faces, so they can do it again. 


  1. Too cute! What a great idea!!!

  2. Hi Christy, thanks for stopping by! I love your blog SuperheroesandPrincesses!

  3. Haha - that is such a creative idea! Hilarious!

  4. Yes, when we finished up with the daddy picture, we texted him with his new look. He got a kick out of it!

  5. Heeheehee ... Looking at you photos makes me think that looking in a mirror and adding shaving cream whiskers to your reflection would be fun too!

  6. Hilarious! Love the end result, what a great idea. Laminating the sheets might be cool too, so you could wipe them clean and create new looks! Love the mirror idea as well.

  7. Oh, yet another reason to invest in a laminating machine! Great ideas, thanks!
