Shhh. Today I share my secret of how to set up a chance to make a coffee and drink it in peace (right after making it). Shaving foam with water beads sensory play is one of my best bets because that’s basically combining my kids’ favourite sensory materials in one play session!
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!
