These icy paints are great for painting on paper, for using as a finger paint, and they also make a fantastic bath paint. (My favorite way to play with shaving cream!) The paints are delightfully fluffy, ultra squishy, and icy cold, making them perfect for the FROZEN movie theme.
The Brush: An old basting brush from my kitchen or my kids fingers. :-) Use toothpicks or a spoon to mix the food coloring in or a plastic/butter knife so your toddler can help. Top off with some Blue & Iridescent Glitter (such as Sparkling Glitter Tube (Iridescent) for Crafts).
The Easel: Our bathroom shower tiles or get a vinyl/clear plastic table cloth & let your child go to town on the table.
The Extras: Stampers, paint rollers, textured paint brushes (ie: ALEX® Toys - Early Learning Funky Brushes -Little Hands 513W), all make shaving cream art even more fun!
The Clean Up: Turn on your shower & rinse off your shower tiles...and then your child! Or if you choose to get creative on the table, just wipe off the plastic table cloth with a damp rag & your done!!
Just as last week, sensory play includes any activity that stimulates your young child’s senses: touch, smell, taste, sight and hearing. However, this week we added another dimension that was not there in last week's play activity with shaving cream, the cold "chill" factor to this activity. Sensory activities and sensory tables facilitate exploration and naturally encourage children to use scientific processes while they play, create, investigate and explore. Spending time stimulating their senses helps children develop cognitively, linguistically, socially and emotionally, physically and creatively.
And now you know...so what are you waiting for! Roll up those sleeves, grab some shaving cream & play hard with your little bees!
