It started as color mixing in Ziploc bags. One generous squirt of shaving cream plus a drop of food coloring per bag made for squishy fun as they watched color distribute throughout the foam. Knowing this would not satisfy their curiosity, I brought out two plastic containers on a tray (as if that would help contain the mess… ha!), reminded the kids that my birthday is coming up and asked if they would please decorate a cake for me. They didn’t get it at first but as soon as I cut a small triangle from the corner of each bag, their eyes lit up and they knew exactly what to do. The colorful shaving cream was fabulous fluffy frosting for my “cakes.”

|"Look Mom, Foam Hands"|
|"OOOO, dis gives me an idea"|
Up to their elbows in shaving cream and looking quite pleased with themselves, they took it to another level... and yes, I know, they always take it to another level.
|That's right, I'm one tough foam dude|
