I gave him a plastic fork and spoon, and a short straw to blow the shaving cream. He drew pictures and lines, and the letter I (the only letter he can write on his own). The first few times his fingers touched the shaving cream he wanted to wash his hands, but he always wanted to play again.

Playing With Shaving Cream: the clean hands version
After I posted about playing with beans, several of you recommended trying shaving cream as a fun sensory activity. Knowing that my son doesn't enjoy getting his hands dirty (he has finally warmed up to playing in the sand after much exposure and encouragement!) I knew he would need a little help with the shaving cream.
