Hi, Welcome to Kid Fun. A place to share ideas of games and activities to play with children. Never hear them utter the words, 'I'm bored' ever again! Come and write for us and you will get a share of the revenue made, plus it's really fun. We are currently offering guaranteed bronze $5 awards for articles with at least 1000 characters, 3 images and at least 1 original image. So grab the kids together and let's have some fun :)
This is great sensory play for kids. It's messy so make sure your kids are in old clothes or have a paint smock on, it's also a good idea to do it outdoors. It does need to be supervised by adults as shaving foam should not be ingested or go anywhere near little eyes.
What you need:
food colouring (optional)
Place a plastic table cloth over your table and let the kids have turns in spraying out the foam onto the table.
Start by letting them play with the plain foam. This is a good place to show them how to form letters and numbers in the foam - you draw a letter and ask them to copy it.
Once they are bored of this, add in the plastic confetti, glitter or whatever other sensory objects you may have in the house. They can make snowmen, cakes or whatever else you or they can think of out of the foam.
You can also add in a couple drops of food colouring to show kids how the foam changes colour and keep adding different colours to see how mixing colours together creates new colours (eg. yellow and red to make orange).
This should keep your kids entertained for a wee while - even the pets may want to get involved!
