Day 7 – Shaving Cream Cupcake Painting

12 Nov

I just never learn 🙂 The photos in the blogs where I find these activites from always make the activites look so cool, calm and professional. Well, as professional as you’re going to get when it comes to toddlers… and then, drum roll my toddler… or maybe it’s the mom, either way, our activities never quite end up as I imagine. But you know what – isn’t that just one of the best lessons our little people teach us on a daily basis.

Anyway, we really did have heaps of fun with this activity this morning with just using some of Dad’s shaving cream, some food colouring and of course some paper….. which we didn’t use, but instead she painted ALL over herself. My monkey clearly doesn’t have a tactile problem and isn’t afraid of making a bit of a mess either! Nothing that a 10am bath can’t sort out though.

A great, quick and easy (and messy) activity that your toddlers will love!


In the spirit of Movember…

    Love it!! Which shaving cream will have the least effect on the digestive system, I wonder… Maybe Orley Whip is another idea?

      ha ha, I wish I had thought of that, I did worry a little about her getting the shaving cream in her eyes, but somehow we managed not to! My husband was bathing her tonight and couldn’t work out why her belly button was green 🙂
