s is for shaving cream snow table

as the week went on, we added glitter, cars and duct taped towels to the back of the couch.


i will admit, along with this being a fun sensory experience, this was motivated by a “can’t beat ’em, join ’em” mentality.  what we as teachers don’t create or provide, will be created by the children.  usually that is what i prefer…to let them create their own play.  but  if wet and goopy is what is desired and i don’t want bottles of glue emptied or toilet paper filling the sink, i could offer a table full of shaving cream.  it worked. go snow!
