Have you heard of that great preschool activity where your kids write letters in shaving cream?
I've seen it lots of places and always thought that it looked so fun.
I wanted to try it with my kids and so one day I said to myself,
"Self, go steal your husband's shaving cream, sit those kiddos at the table, put on some music, and practice those homeschool skills that you say you want to develop."
And so I did!
I put shaving cream on cookies sheets and showed them how to draw/make letters.
Pickle wasn't that into it so he only played for a minute
and then went back to crashing trucks into the wall.
Peanut and Little Miss had a really good time though.
In fact, they, uhm, "excelled" (?!) at it. They took it to another level.They are clearly MUCH smarter than all those other kids
(that's what it is, right?)
because my kids weren't content just with making pictures, no no no.
ANY CHILD can smear some shaving cream around a cookie sheet,
but it takes my little artists...
to turn shaving cream into living sculptures!
And now people can see exactly why I don't answer my phone during the day.
This is what happens.
PS. Peanut and Little Miss would like to let you know that shaving cream stings if you get it in your eyes and that if you get said shaving cream in your eyes because you are screaming while your mother tries to wash shaving cream out of your hair and you're refusing to hold still then you probably won't get much sympathy.
