Dad Came Home Early

Look what happens when the boys find themselves with some unexpected time with their father!  In the words of Wildman, “It was the best day ever!”

I love our little family 🙂


Preschool Activity: Shaving Cream Prints

Yesterday’s preschool craft project was making shaving cream prints.  This is what I had been saving that can of shaving cream for.  You know the one that Wildman got into?

So, I gathered all of the supplies for some messy fun and headed to the backyard because I’m not brave enough do stuff like this in the house.

We sprayed shaving cream into an old, nasty cookie sheet.  The boys smoothed out the foam and squeezed on drops of food coloring.

Doesn’t it look pretty?

Then they got busy swirling the colors around with bamboo skewers.

I let them each place a piece of cardstock on the shaving cream.  They loved patting the paper to make the prints.

Here’s what the prints looked like when I peeled them off of the shaving cream:

And here’s what they looked like after I scraped off the shaving cream and let them dry for a while:

So cool!  I think I might use these to make note cards or something.  They look wonderful and the paper became surprisingly soft and smooth when it dried.  Go Barbasol!

Of course, the boys could not resist smearing shaving cream all over themselves once the prints were complete.  I let them go nuts then hosed them down and let them go in the pool.
