Boys of Summer Series: Shaving Cream Fun

I'm always on the lookout for new ideas to do with the boys.  Summer break is now here for us!  I thought each week I would share a craft or fun activity that would be great for the boys in your life (fine for girls). If you have any ideas to share, let me know! 

This is another fun activity I used to do with the kids when I worked at a daycare.
Warning: Super messy activity ahead!

-mens shaving cream 
-plastic trash bag
-little toys are optional

Directions: (you will want to do this outside!)
1. Cut the trash bag so it will cover the table.  Tape it down.

2.  Have you or your little one spray out the shaving cream out onto the table.

3. Go to town!  Let them use a few toys too to play in the shaving cream! Please remind your kids NOT to eat this!

4. Once done, fold up the trash bag and toss. Hose down whatever dripped on the ground and if your kids get as messy as mine, hose them down too!  :)

If your little guy does this, please leave me a link to your blog post in this comment section!  I would love to see it.

Did you enjoy this activity?
  If you did, will you please give us a little vote!  :)

  1. OH MY GOSH, we do this with whipped cream with my daughter (she kept eating the shaving cream when she was littler, so we thought something more edible might help) and SHE.LOVES.IT. Great activity for summer!

  2. Looks fun. They are both so SO cute!!!

  3. Oh my gosh, this is the cutest thing ever! You are such a fun and creative mama!


  4. This is such a great idea! Lex loves to play with shaving cream in the tub but this looks a lot more fun:) Thanks for the idea.

  5. oh man, your ideas are killer! Love this shaving cream fun...I think even my girls will enjoy this next summer when they're bigger :)
