Cold Shaving Cream Snow

January 5, 2015

Chilling the shaving cream in the freezer for a few minutes before sending the cars slip sliding around adds a little extra something to this snowy sensory play.
Foam shaving cream
Cookie Sheet
Room in your freezer for a cookie sheet

1)   Spray shaving cream onto cookie sheet and sprinkle with glitter.
2)   Place cookie sheet in freezer for 3-5 minutes.   If it stays in too long the texture of the shaving cream will change.  My kids prefer their snow cool but still fluffy so I don’t leave it in the freezer for long.
3)   Remove cookie sheet and place well covered surface.
4)   Let the driving begin!
