Shaving Cream Fun!

One activity that I’ve seen just about every kid I’ve done it with love is playing with shaving cream. There’s something about watching it change from a gel to a foam (if you use that kind) and then spreading it all over a table and making a huge mess that kids just love.

As a bonus, spreading shaving cream also helps get rid of build up gunk and grime on tabletops. It will leave a bit of a film on most tables, but you can easily get that off with a baby wipe or a damp paper towel.

This activity gets pretty messy, most kids have it up to their shoulders by the time it’s over. So, I suggest putting them in old clothes or an art smock.

If you have a young child who would put the shaving cream in their mouth, I suggest using whipped cream or cool whip!

Extend the Activity: After your child gets bored with just playing in the shaving cream, encourage them to draw shapes or write letters and words. You can also add some food coloring or finger paint to color the shaving cream. Add two colors and encourage mixing to create new colors.
