Shaving Cream Fun

Garrett writing and drawing

Today I was looking for a new way for Garrett to learn his alphabet letters and drawing and just writing skills. I had picked up a few trays (these happen to be old school lunch trays) that we have been using for craft trays that way we can move them from the table to another location to dry to to wait until later. But today we took shaving cream and smeared it all over the tray. Then with 1 finger Garrett was able to draw or write his letters. He also discussed how the shaving cream felt and what it smelled like and its characteristics.
I have done this with kids up to 6th grade and they were writing their spelling words and practicing their math facts, It is just a change in media which kids need sometimes.
