This was an impromptu boredom buster in our house. During all the DIY in our living room, the messy arts and crafts supply box became visible to Eldest and he was merrily pulling out pots of paint, packets of jelly and a thousand blooming unpacked pipe cleaners out (agghhhh). Then he stumbled across a can of shaving foam, one that I’d purchased about a year ago with the intention of messy play and just never got round to setting up.
I’m not sure why it took me so long, as it was really no time at all. We used the empty sand and water table (still awaiting this years purchase of sand…) and took great delight in piling mountains of fluffy pillowy shaving foam. For the first ten minutes Eldest took much joy in clapping, digging and scooping the foam with his beach spade.
