The kids did play outside for a little while on the swing set, but I was still disappointed to not get to break out the shaving cream. Until it hit me that we still could! We have a small, hard kiddie pool that I brought in the house and put in the middle of the living room floor. Then I filled it with shaving cream!
The Little One was the first to try it out. The Kid and his friend weren't so sure about it at first, but quickly decided that it was super fun!
I should note here that I intended to put some swim trunks on The Little One as well, but he had different plans and was too impatient for that!
I dropped in toys like little dinosaurs and legos and added a rubbermaid box of water that they could use to clean the toys off.
They played in this for so long! And when it was finally time to get out, the older two decided that a game of crawling chase was in order.
Boy, am I glad that we ripped up the carpet last year!
After all this there was no wiping down of these kids. A bath was in order! So I filled the tub (luckily the bathroom is right off the living room!) and in they went. Again, they had a blast!
While the kids played and splashed, we mamas wiped down the floor. Let me tell you, that was a workout!
I'm pretty sure that this is what ended the shaving cream pool. Poor little guy put his face down in the cream! I tried to wipe it off but he kept trying to wipe it off as well...with his shaving cream covered arm. So yeah, the problem only kept getting worse! So into the tub he went!
How about you? Would you ever consider having a shaving cream pool in the house?
