Shaving Cream and Ice Messy Sensory Play

Pin It

We had fun with colored shaving cream and colored ice during our Blue week in the Color of the Week Exploration Series! This was awesomely fun messy play!

I filled these star shaped candy moulds with water and a drop or two of food coloring in each one, 
then stuck them in the freezer for a bit. The food coloring in these will stain hands when handling, but we played with them in the bath so it diluted the food coloring enough that the boys hands weren't stained. To prevent staining though, you could use washable paint as well for these. Just make sure you use warm water when filling your ice tray so the paint dissolves. 

I colored the shaving cream with some blue food coloring and then dropped in the frozen blue ice stars. 

It turned out such a pretty blue!

The boys did this messy activity right in the tub! The mess was contained and afterwards I just filled up the tub which created a very vibrant and fun BLUE BATH!
