It's no secret around here that using laminated photos is one of my go-to activities for kids. We've used laminated photos of the kids for playdough, dry-erase marker, kinetic sand, loose parts, legos, and shaving cream.
The kids wanted a photo of dad so we snagged his Linkedin headshot to print and laminate. Inspired by these awesome chunky Honey Sticks paintbrushes that reminded me of the fluffy brushes barbers use to apply shaving cream, I set up a little shaving cream sensory activity. Your kids will have a blast painting on the shaving cream and "shaving" it off. This would be the perfect sensory play activity for Father's Day!
