Valentine Sensory Play

The Butterballs love playing with shaving foam.
Cos it's been so hot lately, I decided to combine the shaving foam with a fun 'keep-cool' element
...frozen paint!!! 
Valentine coloured, heart-shaped, frozen paint!!!!

I poured paint into a silicone heart-shaped muffin tray and added a few drops of strawberry essence to each heart.
(panda paints worked beautifully and created a stunning marble effect)
I popped it into the freezer for a few hours.

After covering the Butterballs table with plastic, I squirted a huge, fluffy mound of shaving foam onto it.
I stored the can of shaving foam in the fridge so it was super cold...just perfect for our hot summer afternoons!

I dropped in a few frozen strawberry-scented paint hearts and left the Butterballs to it...

They loved squashing, rubbing and mixing the paint into the shaving foam.

Because of the heat, the paint-hearts melted really rapidly and the Butterballs ooohed and aaahed over the beautiful coloured shaving foam!!

The cool, fluffy, shaving foam felt, looked and smelt awesome!!
A feast for the senses!!!
The yummy strawberry scent had us all craving a bowl of fresh strawberries so after a quick shower, off to Woolies we went, on our next mission... strawberry hunting!! ;)
