Taking "art" to a whole new level


I recently saw the idea to use shave cream for art for the girls.  The idea brought back fond memories of my sister and me playing with shave cream when we were in daycare.

I should have known, however, that because I had these memories, I was probably a little bit older than 20 months.

The shave cream art? Became body art in about 10 seconds flat.

Once again, I would pick this over Vaseline, poop or toothpaste any day, at least it rinses off!

  8. You are one of those fun moms who let her kids get dirty for fun. I am the other kind. Maybe I should try to managed dirty thing for a bit since we too have had a horrible Vaseline experience. Maybe managed dirty getting helps to avoid the couch ruining dirty getting? If so, count me in!
