Everyone who hears these words of Mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. Matthew 7:24-25

Fun with Shaving Cream

Just a few weeks into summer and the monkeys are already bored.  So I dug into my bag of tricks and came up with this incredibly messy activity – shaving cream war.

We made a quick dollar store run and picked up a couple cans of $1 shaving cream and a cheapo, vinyl table cloth.  Ideally a large tarp would have worked much better than the table cloth, but I didn’t have one on hand.  The table cloth was way too small and wouldn’t stay flat, but the the monkeys didn’t let that spoil their fun.

Ahhh.  Nothing better than a swim suit full of shaving cream.

That’s one slippery little chick!

I wish I had picked up a couple of more cans of cream to make the fun last little longer.  The monkeys had squirted every drop within 10 minutes!  But they enjoyed the clean-up just as much, if not more, than the actually war.  What kid doesn’t enjoy getting hosed down by their dad?
