Shaving Cream Painting

This fun sensory activity is great for toddlers and preschoolers who love to paint. And it’s so easy!

  • Squirt foam (not gel) shaving cream into a bowl or tray
  • Add a few drops of washable paint
  • Mix together with a paint brush (experiment with blending different colors!)
  • Use hands (or a paint brush) to move the paint around a canvas, paper or even a window.

Sensory play stimulates the senses and brain development. Plus, it’s soothing and joyful for kids.

Parent Tip: Be prepared for a bit of a mess!
