Last Easter we added colour to the foam and placed egg shaped paper onto the swirls of multi-coloured foam to create Easter patterns. Despite the fact that we had foam and paint directly on the table, it was extremely easy to clean up afterwards.
As the cold dark days of Swedish winter approach the shaving foam will make its appearance again - and now my mind is thinking of adding more materials to it to increase the sensory experience (by adding glitter, beads, or squirting it onto foil) but also to expand the learning experience too - how do different materials create patterns - what is the difference between a spoon, fork or comb - what will the effect of a sponge be...?
Really it is only our imagination that will limit us - sometimes things can be used in the most surprising ways. So next time you see an idea online - give it a try...
