Shaving Cream Art

My patio table needed to be washed. Baby Bear needed to be entertained. So, I sat Baby Bear down at the table, sprayed some shaving cream in front of him, and we got to wash by making a mess!

Mama, what is this?

Ooo, I like this stuff!

Look, I can make lines and draw!

I wrote out numbers 1-4. He "counted" with me, and then he tried tracing the numbers. I hadn't thought of tracing over figures with shaving cream before, but what a great way to practice forming letters, numbers, and shapes!

Look, Mama! When I pull my hand off the table it makes peaks!

He was making a royal mess, so I told him we would have to wash his clothes as soon as we were done. He decided to help by starting right then. Yep, that's my Baby Bear!


  1. Shaving Cream art is very fun, when my kids were little we used to add a little tempura paint to the shaving cream and give them big brushes to paint with, they loved it. :) Stopping by from the Crafty Moms Share Blog Hop.

  2. What a fun idea!! I love when getting messy can be useful. Thank you for sharing at Sharing Saturday!! I hope you will join us again this week!

  3. You've helped me feel a little more confident about 'doing' a shaving cream activity with my littlies. Thanks for linking up to The Kids Co-op!
