Today the Babies have had loads of sensory fun exploring shaving gel, mixed with glitter and snowflakes!
First we mixed all the ingredients together in a big bowl then we explored it using our hands. Squelching it through our fingers and also clapping our hands together to make snow! The Babies were really interested in watching how the foam went up in the air, seeing how far up it goes and how it floated back down. The children copied the adults, using their fingers to mix the gel with the glitter, clapping their hands and putting it to their noses to smell!
