We've done other shaving cream crafts in the past and my daughter was always apprehensive about touching it, that is up until now! I'm glad I tried shaving cream again because my daughter really had fun with it this time. She even told me that she didn't need anything else to stir the shaving cream with except for her hands.....well, ok then!
We started off with a baking sheet and added some shaving cream to it. We then added a few drops of green food coloring and that's when the mixing begins. Like I said my daughter dug right in! I didn't even get a chance to tell her not to mix the food coloring all the way through the shaving cream since I was hoping for more of marbled or swirled look. At this point I was just glad that she took to the sensory experience!
Once the food coloring is mixed around we took a piece of white paper and placed it flat down onto the shaving cream then lifted it off.
I also used a scraper to take off the excess shaving cream.
The huge black pom pom's were not my idea of Christmas-y but this is her craft after all!
This is an easy and fun craft that exposes your child to a sensory experience and if you use glue to stick on the pom pom's you'll work on fine motor skills too!

Posicle stick or straw for stirring (or just use your hands if you don't mind green hands for a few days!!)
