Shaving Cream Painting
I always save our yogurt cups (my husband thinks I'm crazy) and they were perfect paint containers. A few squirts of shaving cream and a few drops of food coloring! The first round made it obvious I hadn't worked with shaving cream or mousse in a while - the cream expanded way beyond the cup!
Chiquita helped mix the colors. She took some time to build up steam painting, I think slowly coming to the realization that I really meant it when I said she could paint anywhere! Well, almost. Bathtime almost ended when she started painting her face. Shaving cream is not meant to go in your eyes or mouth!
I had to drain the tub and fill it again because Chiquita wouldn't get out!! We had three cups, so the first round we did blue, red and green. The second tub of water got purple, sort of brown and yellow. I was happy that Chiquita could name them all in Spanish!
red = rojo
blue = azul
green = verde (we've been practicing this a lot with stop lights so it's the one she remembers the best)
brown = marron
purple = morado
It was almost as much fun to clean up as to paint with funnels and cups we tossed water on the walls and finally got a wash cloth to finish wiping it down. We will definitely be doing this again!
