    This is great!!! I hate to admit I’ve never used shaving cream at home for the kids… although they’ve used it at their preschools. I’m definitely going to try the painting in the bathtub one! FUN!!!

    Lots of great ideas with shaving cream. The feel of it, squishing it between their fingers, even in their hair. Wow! What fun kids can have with shaving cream. Many creative, playful hours of a good time.
