I set up a simple Valentine's Day shaving cream sensory activity using dollar store Valentine's swag, glitter, and powdered tempura paint (you could also use washable paint, food coloring, Kool-aid, or Duncan Hines Frosting Creations for color.) The point of this activity is really just good ole messy sensory play. My oldest has always loved mixing and making potions and concoctions, or pretend cooking with real ingredients, and so he really loved this!
"B" (18 mo) got in on the shaving cream fun too!
I put a glob on his chair and added some powdered tempura paint for him to mix in.
He was reluctant at first, but the second picture may look like he's saying "eeww!" but he's actually saying "yay!"--no really, it's like his favorite thing to say haha!
The end result was so pretty and lots of the trinkets we were able to
wash off and save for another time and project.
