Shaving foam with water beads sensory play

The setup: Spray lots of shaving foam over the water beads

Leave them to mix it all up (which they will be more than willing to):

The shaving foam and water beads are combined in no time –

If you’ve got multi-coloured water beads, this would look even lovelier!

They’d want to squish and throw the water beads about… and step on them too. I strongly recommend conducting this activity in the shower area.

Dropping water beads coated with shaving foam is so much fun…

because they leave really cute trails on the floor:

Clean up is usually done concurrently during bath time where they help to gather the water beads that are still intact and keep them away for future play.

There you are. It’s time to put this together so you can get your coffee!

Here’s how we used water beads to set up our Ocean themed sensory bin. And we painted with waterbeads too!

  3. My 5 year old would get a kick out of doing this! I was thinking of putting the shaving cream in a gallon freezer bag for mushing, but why not let him dig his hands into it?
