Shaving cream snow

I have seen this on several blogs and I wanted to try it. Since Diego loves to get messy I was sure that he would LOVE it. Boy, was I wrong! He played in it for a total of 15 seconds before insisting that I wash off his hands. We repeated this split-second playing then running to the sink to wash about five times before we both gave up. Oh well, you never know. Since I still had an entire can of shaving cream left, I let them "paint" with it in the bathtub. That was much more popular since he could clean off his hands at anytime.

  1. Haha - Anna had shaving cream tray in school, and I could see how she displayed no desire whatsoever to play with it. Too bad, because I thought that she might enjoy painting with it too.

  5. little man acts the same way when something different is on his hands. He now loves handsanitizer and will run to the sink to wash his hands when ever he can. I think I would still try this to see if he liked it. Thanks for sharing!

  6. well, i say you have to launch a lot of duds before you find a real zinger! maybe if you give him a popsicle stick or something? or hide something in the foam? shaving cream makes awesome finger paint if you add food coloring--the colors turn out all pastel!

  7. That's a shame, because there's so many awesome things to do with it. Even using it to clean......
    I think mine didn't like it at first either, and then when I tried it again a few months later they liked it.
