I was able to stretch these items into three activities. The first activity I found of Pinterest. I thought I had pinned it but apparently not. Anyway it is super easy! You mix equal parts of cornstarch and shaving cream to make a dough.
Very messy! I then added some blue and green food coloring to create Megan's favorite color. The texture of this dough was awesome. The kids loved it! I might add that the little ones made a very big mess. I was okay with that as I was able to fold two loads of laundry and the floor needed mopped anyway.
Activity two was cornstarch painting. Mix cornstarch, water and food coloring.
I love this stuff! As the water evaporates you are left the dried cornstarch. Clean up is easy as all you do is hose it off.
I think activity three might have been the biggest hit. I used the remaining can of shaving cream and put it into the water table. Then the real fun began!
To quote Abe "it was fun because it was messy!" At the end of day imaginations were used, everyone had a blast and I have no toys to store. For $1.96 I call this a win!
May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
