This was a idea you can remake in all different ways.
We used shaving cream, sprinkles, food coloring, toys and candy hearts.
You could use whipped cream to make it all edible, glitter rather then sprinkles, and other toys you have on hand. We were able to talk about a few of the 5 senses in this activity. Smell of the shaving cream, touch of the different things included, the way everything looked for sight, and the noises the shaving cream made when squeezed in their hands. If you use whipped cream you can cover all 5!
This was a great before bath idea and lasted awhile for us, until mommy said it was bath time.
note~ the toys we used are called num noms, bought at our local toy store.
