Shave cream sensory painting in our preschool classroom

in Shave Cream Painting

Every single day, our preschoolers ask me to let them paint with shave cream on our window easel….

I keep a bottle of shave cream in our outdoor classroom at all times and we add food color so the children can paint with it on the sensory window…

There isn’t a day goes by that someone isn’t painting on the window easel. I plan to add other ideas for them to use on the window easel but because of popular demand, I have just continued to let the children paint with the shave cream for now..

This is messy – I will not kid you but the children have learned how to use the wash cloths to wash the shave cream off the window and their hands, and arms, and legs and floor, as they go along…

I am excited about integrating new tools and materials into our use of the window easel but I wont change it up too early so the children can just have fun with this experience for now…

Besides, I do get to go home every day smelling fresh and clean like shave cream!
