Christmas Themed Shaving Cream Sensory Bin

Pin It

I can only go a few days without some good ole fashioned messy fun with L.
I've been wanting to do a Christmas themed sensory bin, but because we love messy projects and it had been a few days since our last one, I brought out the shaving cream as a little twist.

Started with a plastic tub of shaving cream (2 cans)

First I added a bit of white glitter and peppermint extract so it sparkled like snow,
and smelled like Christmas!

I sprinkled a few jingle bells and Christmas buttons then mixed them in for suprise finds.
You can mix in lots of different Christmas decor that can easily be washed off and used again, such as bows and shatterproof ornaments!

I put down a plastic table cloth and  then I let him free to play!
I gave him some red and green glitter to add and mix as he pleased.

Children really love having a bucket of water to clean their hands. It also serves as part of the fun.
L made Christmas Soup!  He also used the water to clean off his Christmas Treasure that he'd find in the shaving cream.
