Shaving Cream

We were bored with being stuck inside.  So I got out the shaving cream, and sprayed it all over the table.
 The twins practiced writing their names.
 Everyone got a little soapy.
 But it's kind of like hiring a bunch of people to deep scrub your table.  For free. 
Can't argue with that.

That's such a great idea Mom! Bet you could add a little food colouring for even more messy fun.

I was wondering why you would put shaving cream on the table. You were thinking way ahead on that day.

How I wish I had known about that idea when my own daughter was small! I remember that winter seemed endless when she was a child and any fun idea was welcome. I turned up the heat once, we put on our swim suits and had a beach party in the bathroom, complete with beach ball and music. Once I gave her the water colors and instructed her to put on her swimsuit and paint anything exposed. She was happy for hours! Love the smiles and looks on their faces!!!!

Haha! This is too cool. I bet they had a blast. Just yesterday my sister posted a photo of her son with shaving cream in the bathtub all over the place! He had a fun time with it.

Looks like fun. The girls also have fun playing with shaving cream, although I am not a fan of the cleanup.

My son's Kindergarten teacher does this with the kids. She tells parents to do it at home too, as a great way to reinforce letter/number writing.

Makes me almost want to be a kid again! :) I'll bet it smells good at your house!

When I worked at the school system we would have the students do this to their desk the last day of school. It is fun and it's cleans.
