Sensory Shaving Foam Painting

We were delighted to feature on Building Blocks and Acorns this week, beginning their - Rainy Day activity month.

The rain was pouring and outside was cold - we had our first snowy down pour last night so today we set about doing some sensory shaving foam painting. Very little needed for this activity and its so calming and beautiful.

You will need:
Glitter (optional)
Shaving Foam

1. Squirt shaving foam into a tray. Spray until the bottom of the tray is covered over.
2. Drop paint onto the foam (like above)
3. Sprinkle in the glitter
4. Use the straws to create patterns and shapes.

Our Experience:

Little N was very keen to get going with this sensory shaving foam painting activity. She hasn't tried this before so it was a new experience for her and one I will definitely be doing again very soon. She used the straws to swirl the paint and glitter around in the shaving foam. As she pulled the end of her straw through the foam beautiful patterns were created. She looked down and watched as her actions made changes to the shaving foam canvas.

The swirls looked so effective and Little N was amazed at what was happening. She sat doing this activity completely enthralled. Once the colours began mixing together more, she used her straw to mix quickly. "I'm making some ice creams' she said.

Sensory Shaving Foam Painting was such a hit! It created intriguing patterns that were very appealing to the eyes, the scent of the foam smelt clean and fresh and you can even explore the textures with your hands and feet.

Please Note: This activity was done under full adult supervision. When buying the shaving cream I also selected foam suitable for sensitive skin to help avoid skin irritation.
