As I said last week when I shared our Spring (flowers) Garden preschool sensory activity, we are longing for Spring to get here. To be honest, I would be happy with even single digit temperatures below zero.
Continuing with our Spring flowers theme, today I am going to share with you one of J’s preschool activities that I absolutely adore. I love it so much that I took tons of pics and I am now researching how to preserve it. Let’s walk.
I really wanted an activity that would not only be fun but to develop a her fine motor skills as well and if I can throw in a sensory aspect then that would be a bonus. I figured, hey she loves to draw- maybe she will like painting.
Spring Preschool Art Activities: Shaving Cream Painting

Once I decided that painting was the activity of the hour, I decided to grab our paints. Once I went to the art bin I looked up on the bookshelf and saw 150+ Screen Free Activities for Kids. I went directly to the contents to see if there were any activities/ recipes for paints. What caught my attention? SHAVING CREAM PAINT!!!!
What We Did
I quickly followed the easy and simple directions in the book to make my paint and I even added a few drops of peppermint to the red paint. (My daughter LOVES smelling things)
Once the paint mixture was completed, I grabbed her easel and set up her painting area. The picture that she painted is from the FREE Spring Flower pack that I created.
