Painting with shaving cream is something I’ve had on our to-do list for a while now. The amazing Anna from The Imagination Tree made shaving cream bath paint last winter and I love how she served hers up.
If you only have one or two little ones, the shaving cream paint is a fabulous bath-time activity. I play with a sightly larger crowd though so I made a mental note to figure out how to do something similar without having to squeeze a bunch of Hooligans into my bathtub or guest-shower.
Last night it dawned on me: our sliding glass doors! One pane of glass is obstructed by the sliding screen, and I didn’t want my little artists to be crammed around just the one pane, so I popped the screen door off the track and set it aside so they’d have both panes to paint on. PERFECT!
Honestly, they had a blast. They were at it for about an hour, and when 3 of them finally finished up and moved on one of the youngest ones stayed at it for a good 15 or 20 minutes more. Who knew something this simple would keep them entertained for this long? It was a great way to spend the morning.
