Shaving cream fun

We started with two bowls of shaving cream and mixed a few drops of food colouring into it ....
And mixed...
Started a shaving cream masterpiece by adding a few drops of glue to the mix the foam sticks to the cardboard. Added some glitter,flowers,toothpicks and ribbons. Just a tip when placing out items to use like glitter, i find using a small container with only the amount needed works much easier than reminding your child to "only use a little bit"

Masterpiece finished and ready to dry...what next?

We couldn't let all that foam go to waste so in a big tub we played with it, squishing it and mixing the colours to make green

Then to finish off the foam we used it to play 'car washing' with Tara's bike. Soaping it up then pouring water over it to rinse and not forgetting to dry it off. Tasks like this are a great way to encourage sticking to a task till its finished in a fun way!
