We Play - With Lots of Shaving Foam


Don't forget to stop by Childhood 101 We Play where you can find lots of other great play ideas....

We     Play

Lots of Shaving Foam = Lots of Fun, Lots of Smiles, Lots of Giggles and Lots of Mess (easy to clean up mess mind you) It was $3 well spent

Filling up the paddling pool with shaving foam this took awhile but is a great work out for little fingers

We spread the shaving foam around with a spade and added some toys

Liam loved pushing the trucks through the foam

and it was fun to smear

Neevah got right into the fun exploring with her hands

and they both loved exploring the shaving foam with their feet it was slippery and lots of fun!

Clean up was quite easy and almost as much fun as playtime .... I stripped off the kids clothes and pushed the paddling pool under the outside tap were the kids rinsed off all the toys, themselves and the pool.

ETA : we used 2 cans of shaving foam in our paddling pool :)

Shaving cream is so much fun! We like to get out all our cooking stuff and make cakes with it too. And shaving cream paintings are always fun too!

OoooH! Princess would love that, but she'd have to do it in the bath, and I'd be worried about her falling over! And she'd have to be naked, because getting it on her clothes like Neevah did would just freak her out! It was all I could do to stop her changing for the third time after getting playdough stuck to her pants today (good job she didn't change after the amount of paint she got on there too!)

One can made all that foam!? Wow!

It was so much fun even I was covered in foam!

Amanda - it was actually 2 cans (should have really put that ooopps!) they cost $1.50 each

by the end they had foam everywhere Liam even sat down in the paddling pool he was coated in it LOL

I never thought of using shaving cream in a pool! So much better - kids can get really messy in that as opposed to the table!

I love messes, but I have this weird thing about shaving cream!! I've just never been able to let my kids play with it -- I have no idea why!!

It looks like they had a great time!

That looks absolutely awesome! I'm going to give this a whirl with my kids. Cheap, easy, messy fun: love it!

Saving foam is so much fun :) I usually let my girls outside with it on warm summer days when they can be in just swimwear :)

You are so clever, I love this big scale exploration having only every tried shaving cream on a tray or the shower screen before :)
