Shaving Cream Fun! 6 Ways.

Written by Jen Sill

Shaving Cream can be all kinds of inexpensive fun!!

The big cans of it can be purchased at the Dollar Store or your local grocery store 2-for-one sometimes.

 Here are some projects we did this week:

Fill a glass or glass jar with water.  Squirt shaving cream on top.  Drip in some blue (or any other color) food coloring.  You can also mix and talk about color mixes and primary colors.

 

Bath Paint: 

Need a few dixie cups (or I’ve seen this done with a muffin tin).

Squirt in Shaving Cream.  

Add one or two drops of food coloring.  Mix

Now paint – with brushes or fingers.

 

 Foam Dough:

Mix Cornstarch with the above recipe.  (Shaving cream, food coloring & cornstarch).

**Note: Without the food coloring and just a bit less cornstarch it can be fun in the summer:
