I love shaving cream....When my kids get crazy and Im about to pull out all my hair I sit them down on the kitchen floor and spray shaving cream on the floor in front of them. They play (well after I got my 3 year old over her "MESS" fear) for about 30 minutes or so then I put them both in the shower while I mop up the shaving cream. I get some peace, clean kids and a clean floor...all for under two dollars :D .

That's a good idea. Only I could see shaving cream winding up on the walls....in the carpet....my hair...

My shaving cream is bubble mix.

I send my kids outside with a bottle of bubble mix each and they have fun and come back in sane. :D

The after-school care at my son's school uses shaving cream a lot. Kids do have a lot of fun with it. Very tactile. And washable.

Thank you Marcia. I went out today and got that picture and a couple of others enlarged and printed.

Also purchased more bubble mix and different sorts of wands. You can never have enough bubble blowing stuff. :grin:
