Painting with shaving cream is an amazing sensory play idea for indoors or out! Use it in the bath or take it outside to paint on the sliding glass doors like we did!
We love playing with shaving cream! I always have a couple of cheap cans of Barbasol shaving foam set aside for play activities. We frequently use it to create art and for sensory play.
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 we use our sliding glass doors as a large “canvas” for everyone to gather around.

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.
