Cure for the cabin fever. Try this simple recipe for some kid-friendly fun.
What you will need:
1 or more cans of shaving cream (not gel)
assorted food coloring
some paper for a canvas
Squirt several different piles of shaving cream into a couple of small bowls. Add a few drops of food coloring to each bowl. Give each child a piece of paper or styrofoam plate to use as a canvas. Let your imagination soar by using toothpicks, forks, etc for painting. You can also warm the can of shaving cream up in some hot water before squirting into individual bowls as this can help soothe a cranky child. To make this even more fun, dress kids in their swimming suits and put them in the bathtub. This makes clean up a breeze and they absolutely love it! Be sure to wash up after finished with this project to avoid skin irritation. Note: This is not a good idea for kids that will put their fingers into their mouths to taste it. For these kids, try aerosol whipped cream.
