Shaving Cream Sensory Play - Red, White, Blue

If you've never let your toddler play with shaving cream then you really should give it a go! Its an easy toddler activity to set up, and one that they always love playing with. If you're worried about them getting it in their mouth or eyes you can easily substitute with whipped cream instead. For this sensory bin I recommend keeping it small as you want to keep the mess relatively contained!
