I've posted before about shaving cream writing inside a bag (see HERE), which is a great option for those of you who don't like messes or for when it's cold and you don't feel comfortable with shaving cream all over (under, around, etc.) your table. But since the weather is still nice in my neck of the woods, and school is back in full swing, we went outside this week to practice our spelling words with shaving cream!
Because our patio table has slatted wood, we used trays to give the kids their own smooth space. You can find cheap shaving cream at Walmart for $.98. My 2nd grader practiced writing her spelling words, my kindergartener practiced writing her blends (ba, be, bi, bo, bu, etc.) and my preschooler practiced his name.
Then, they went to town giving themselves mustaches and beards and drawing pictures in the cream. It's such a fun way to practice spelling!
