Shaving Cream Delight

"I want a Christmas activity" is the catch-cry at our house at the moment, it's already wearing a little thin. Activities have included moon dough, magic sand, painting, playdough, new toys, games, etc... One of our more unusual gifts to the kids was a can of shaving cream.  It has already emerged at bath time for some slippery fun - the little one was calling it "Shame" which is a cross between shaving cream and foam.
 Shame with food die - Fame perhaps.

  A visit to the hairdressers is on the cards this holidays, we're saving on sunglasses.

This activity got a little messier than I expected.  Little one required a bath at the end. Amazingly the big Bowerbird cleaned the whole mess up while I was bathing little Bowerbird and said it was fun. A very tactile activity and a good lesson in mixing colours as well.


  1. i want to come play at your house, looks lie so much fun in a beautiful setting :)

  2. Fame! I love it! What messy fun for your little bowerbirds. :)


In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.

And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour:
"Winter is dead.”
