We always love to get messy with sensory play, and this red white and blue shaving cream sensory play is perfect for holidays like 4th July and Memorial day. Suitable for toddlers and preschoolers, this is a fun and easy toddler activity that I know they’ll love!
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!
What you need to make a red, white and blue sensory bin with shaving cream
- A container – I used one like this but any kind of shallow container will do
- Shaving cream (make sure it’s the old fashioned cream kind, not gel)
- Food coloring – red and blue
How to make your patriotic shaving cream sensory bin
Fill your container with shaving cream in 3 lines.
Add a few drops of red and blue food coloring
Mix the food coloring and the shaving cream together.
Let them play!
