I think I need a 1:1 training session in how to make these work. We squeeze the shaving cream into the bags, added drops of food coloring, and mixed and mixed the colors! I think I added too much shaving cream though because when we tried to squeeze the air out of the bags, tons of shaving cream came out too!
It was pretty funny... but made it hard for us to write on some of the bags.
I think next time we'll use less shaving cream and hopefully it will work better. Either way, the color mixing was fun (I loved this post about shaving cream color mixing from No Time for Flashcards)... and our attempts to make shapes and write letters definitely kept the morning entertaining.
I totally thought my 3.5 yr old was beyond eating shaving cream... but I was wrong! I scooped some out of the bag with a plastic spoon and he totally tried to take a lick. Ew! I am definitely glad we didn't do this on a tabletop without the plastic bags.
If you're an expert ziploc bag shaving cream maker... pass along any tips :) I usually avoid messy activities like this, but I am trying to be a little more flexible. Maybe next time I'll even let my little guy make this rainbow shaving cream paint from Meet the Dubiens?
