Winnie the Pooh made it into the park too and was buried in snow at one point, which caused much hilarity.
“Dis is FUN Mummy!”
She played with this small world scene for longer than the construction site last week, probably because of the messy play element and also because we had all that snow before Christmas and so that was fresh in her mind. She did seem to believe it was real snow, which was quite amusing, but not so when she tried to eat it. I did warn her it wouldn’t taste nice!
“Little boy go skatin on da pond.”
What’s so lovely about shaving foam is that it is really easy and nice to clean up and leaves everything clean and smelling lovely afterwards! I do recommend keeping a big towel nearby for wiping foam off hands (and faces!) before they touch furniture etc.
The next morning she went straight downstairs in her PJs and found the garden tray, started lugging it upstairs and saying “time for more snow now Mummy?!” So I guess she enjoyed it a lot.
Tomorrow I will post the lovely art that we made from the left over foam before we washed it up.

Love the foam snow! And you’re right it would clean your toys very nicely… hmmm, kill 2 birds with one stone!
We did a similar thing recently ( at http://traininghappyhearts.blogspot.com/2011/01/wearing-spd-lenses-snow-sculptures-with.html ) and have a post coming TH abut adding real ice to it. Such fun!
Oh my! You are fun! This is brilliant! Bet you had a really good afternoon!
Thank you for linking up another fun idea!!!

Your little scene looks so inviting – who could resist?!
What a wonderful idea! My kids are a bit older, but I think they would enjoy this too. Maybe I could make some action heros in the snow for my son. Thanks for sharing!
