Outdoor Activities with Shaving Cream!

I love giving my kids activities to do outside, and they love it when those outdoor activities make a mess. I do NOT love it when they make a mess, even outside. So I try to find activities that while messy, are easy to clean up.

My kids played at a friends house and used shaving cream outside to make art on the sidewalk. We don’t actually have sidewalk since we live in a rural area. We do have a very large back patio, and they love to use chalk on it. I had been hesitant to let them do too much without being sure it would wash off. So I did a little research and found this fun website called The Tiptoe Fairy. This fun website features a shaving cream recipe that allows your kids to make their own puffy paint for sidewalks (or patios) that washes off easily.  Thank you Tiptoe Fairy for this great idea. Now my kids can make a mess, and I can be sure it comes off.

The Tiptoe Fairy has a very simple and easy to follow tutorial that will help you to recreate her foamy puff paint. My kids loved the paint. Although it does stick pretty well to the cement it washes off with moderate water pressure. It was the perfect way to get them unplugged and outside during their weekend playtime.

Be sure to head on over to The Tiptoe Fairy for the complete tutorial, and be sure to check out her other amazing tutorials!
