I am always looking for new activities to do at home. With Ella the task has become even more challenging as she needs my attention more than some activities provide. The other day I ran across an impressive blog post on how to make colored soap puffy paint for the bath. Impressive indeed also ridiculously time consuming. It made me think however, how much my first graders LOVED cleaning their desks with shaving cream. So I pulled out the shaving cream and let Ava go to town on our hallway mirror. (A glass door would also work). We call it the Messy Game and Ava had a blast. We have done this many times since I have yet to food color the shaving cream although I think that is possible! Easy to clean up, free and above all FUN!!!
