Sensory Play with Shaving Cream
I thought i’d do a quick update with some photos from a sensory play session with Mikah. Mikah typically dislikes mushy things (especially food) and getting messy.
The shaving cream activity is something he did while in occupational therapy for his sensory processing disorder. It was really fun for him. Mikah likes having coversations with people and I overheard him talking to a lady at the convenience store about playing with shaving cream at his therapy… and how much he missed it.
It kind of broke my heart so I bought the shaving cream and set this up for him at home.
I laid a trash bag in a large cardboard box (we have a ton lying around from ordering car parts online!) and added some toys (kitty mobile + people) and paint to color the cream. He had a lot of fun and it kept him occupied for a good 20 minutes.
Clean up was so easy- just flipped the trashbag inside out. It just goes to show that the best toys are ones you don’t have to spend a lot of money on.
p.s. Wednesday Wanderings will be on hiatus this week while we get everything in gear for the road trip. We’re brewing a storm here at home cleaning, packing, and squaring away details.
I’ll be back soon with updates on ‘Vanlife’ (soon to be blog section!) and pictures from the prep.
