(Nearly) Free Sensory Saturday

Dollar Tree the the rescue again! Shaving cream is a great way to incorporate sensory skills into your day. Shaving cream usually has a distinctive smell and feeling. You can work on prewriting skills, letter formation, draw a person, work on self care skills (i.e. cleaning up hands or clothing) and so much more!

  • Shaving Cream
  • Baking pan (for those times without a hard surface)
  • Baby wipes (for clean up)
Cost: $3.00

Skills addressed:
Shaving cream is SO versatile:
  • Sensory Processing! 
  • Fine motor
  • Finger isolation
  • Prewriting skills
  • Letter formaion
  • Self-Care (you could put on an oversized shirt, put shaving cream on the bum and work on toileting self care as well!)
How to adapt:
Within the skills you are addressing, adapt accordingly. Use hand over hand or visuals for correct formation. Use a mask to dampen the smell for over sensitive kids. The sky's the limit with shaving cream!

Have fun for $3.00 and remember, getting messy is part of childhood!


Shelly feels like short weeks last the longest!
