Shaving Cream and Glue Snowman Projects
In case you can't tell, this mixture is one of our favorites to use at school. We love the sensory texture, the smell, and the end results too.
We all made snowman with it, depending on the group, we had them make free form, or we gave them a shape to "paint" in the younger classes. On another BLOG posting, I showed the process on a paper plate to make a snowman face. It is great because you can add things to embellish the art and the glue makes it stick. When it dries it has a puffy texture.
The recipe is simple: mix two parts shaving cream and one part glue (like Elmers) and have fun. The amounts don't have to be exact, some of the teachers use half glue, half shaving cream. You could also use twigs and small stones to make the snowman.
