Squirt all the shaving cream into a bucket. My kiddo needed two hands to press the button down firmly enough to get the shaving cream to come out. Fine motor work is a bonus here.
Add in cornstarch, a bit at a time, and knead the shaving cream and cornstarch together. The better they are incorporated, the better they hold together.
More fine motor work. We ended up using the whole box.
As you can see, our materials left the bucket. It’s washes off completely with water, but if you have animals, I suggest keeping them inside as we did because they kept trying to eat the mixture.
Make some creations!
This is a “crab”.
It became a “monster”.
Here is a snowman. That led to singing “Do you want to build a snowman?” and the kids making it snow all over the patio. My son told us it could finally be Christmas because it had finally snowed. He has seen Charlie Brown Christmas too many times. Do this activity. Have a blast!
