We are THAT Family
... you know the ones.
I love this activity. And on a cookie sheet….brilliant!!
Of course, my 7 year old empties the shaving cream can in the shower now “painting” on the shower walls!
Is that one of those flip waffle makers I see in your picture? If so do you love it? Always wanted one, but don’t want to spend the money .Toni
So fun! We used to beg our parents to squirt some on our stomachs before bath. We would finger paint on our own skin.
Great idea. And since shaving cream is basically SOAP…you have very clean cookie sheet too!
if your up to it..the shaving cream rocks..and so do funnels bowls and cups..with rice or beans..they say it builds the the kensentic ( I know I chopped that up!) anyways great job!
ah, yes, i miss those little hands and the messes they made. love this post
God Bless you for this tip, I am so going to do it tomorrow and I’ll post a pic to show ya! Pebbles is hyper and gets bored very easily…this will be perfect!
I’m too sick to participate this week But I’ll be back with a vengeance next week. Unless I’m dead. At this point anything is possible.
That is great. Maybe you should have saved it for WFMW!! My little guy would LOVE this.
Oh what sweet little hands!
What a GREAT sensory activity! (So says the momma with SPD, who has a daughter with SPD.)
That looks like so much fun!!!! I will have to do that with my kids sometime.
Looks like a new activity for my boy – Thanks for the tip – and yes, toddlers and trouble go together like rama-lama-lama-kadingidy-ding-de-dong!
She looks like she is having fun. I use shaving cream and my kids practice their spelling words in it..they love it!-sandy toe
What a great idea! I might even get to clean the bathroom while they are bathing if I do that!
That is a great idea for an occupier! Hmm…
How fun! The cookie sheet is a great idea! I used to have to FORCE mine to put his hands in the shaving cream. “It’s FUN, I PROMISE!”
Oh, fun! When I had a linoleum kitchen floor I let the kids spray it down with shaving cream and skate. They had fun and I ended up with a shiny floor! Now that I have hardwood I let them do this with furniture polish every once in a while. I didn’t think as practically as you – a cookie sheet is fun without the hour of clean-up…!
She’s so cute! I love that activity idea. Perhaps I’ll try that today with my 2-year-old.
Oh! I always thought the pictures had to be vintage to participate in your carnival!
I’ve got a doozy for you. I’ll be back later. I’m gonna win the Mommy of the Year award!
I used to do that with my kids, but I put shaving cream on a paper plate and then let them paint on the bathroom walls with it during their bath. Sometimes I squirted a little food coloring in it and tinted it. I miss those days!
That is fantastic – love it!
I just discovered your blog. I already love it. I guess nowadays almost every family is THAT family!!
She is such a cut cohort of the devil!
I wonder if I did this in the tub for Logan would he stay in there longer than a minute? I mean he is in and out of there so quickly that I think he is allergic to water.
My daughter’s preschool uses that trick to clean up some of the toys! The ride-on toys outside get “car washes” occasionally; the kids have fun playing with foam, and the toys get clean.
Sorry my link didn’t work. I’ll try to fix it.
This should be the link in Mr. Linky.http://theanimatorswife.blogspot.com/2009/02/oh-smile-already_19.html
Sorry, I’m a bit new to this!
My son would love that! He so wants to dig in the dirt outside, but it’s still too frozen.
My kids also love water play. This was a good idea.
Forget doing it with the kids – I’m going to do this by myself during their nap!!
What a fun idea! Thanks for sharing this.
I never thought of this until I saw it on MckMama’s blog a week or two ago! Thanks for sharing it here!
I have an old photo that was part of an old blog post that I shared – hope that’s ok to add to your little carnival. But I thought my “then and now” theme might suit seeing as Tonggu Momma was pulling out the old pics for her post as well.
Great idea! My 2yo would totally dig that! (And of course, the 4yo would too – heaven forbid one do something w/o the other!)
This is adorable! Great idea! I love her apron! Too cute!
That looks like fun to me. Maybe I should try shaving cream play as a stress reducer.
So much fun! I remember playing with shaving cream on tables in headstart.
Cute!! What a fun idea!
Brilliant idea my 2 yr old twins would love it …and probably eat it !
You are such an awesome mom! What fun!!!
My little ones love the foam bath soap that comes out like shaving cream….looks a lot like your little one’s art!
what a great idea and what a sweet, sweet post!
New to your blog…and to this ‘fro thing. What does the ‘fro stand for? For the life of me I can’t figure what letters are missing before the fro and it’s making me nuts. I thought it might be a way of saying from except that would be fro’ so I’m at a loss.
If you’re new to the ‘fro, I got this name because as a child my Mom did so many home perms on my hair, I developed a lovely afro. So, the carnival began with unscrappable photo, both old and new, ‘fro and no ‘fro hair, etc!
Thanks for the explanation! The only thing I could think of was afro but I didn’t know if that was politically correct anymore. I myself sported a number of home perms and can identify with the ‘fro.

HI! I'm Kristen. I'm here to encourage you as a wife and mom and remind you there's a little bit of THAT family in all of us. I write books, run Mercy House and try to remember I am third (God first, others second). I'm glad you're here.
