My daughter recently started to tolerate arts and crafts.

She scribbles with crayons and markers.

She creates masterpieces with watercolors.

She sits patiently with me while we try to cut shapes out of construction paper.

And if I slap a bunch of glue onto a piece of paper, she’s more than happy to place pom poms, tissue paper, feathers, and pipe cleaners on top.

It’s pretty cool.

But the moment she gets anything sticky on her hands, whatever activity we’re doing comes to a screeching halt so I can remove the offending mess from her body.

Now, this little issue of hers is no big deal when we’re goofing around at home, but when she refused to partake in pumpkin carving at preschool a few weeks ago, I decided it was time for an intervention. So I spent some time searching for shaving cream activities for kids, and before I knew it, I had a complete list of ridiculously fun things for the 2 of us to do together. And since I know I’m not the only mom out there who is constantly on the hunt for boredom busters, I had to share them with all of you.

Speaking of boredom busters, I recently found 3 great kids activities books that are FILLED with great ideas to keep you and your little ones from climbing the walls. They’re available at Barnes and Nobles, or you can order them online here: 101 Kids Activities That Are the Bestest, Funnest Ever! by Holly Homer and Rachel Miller, The 101 Coolest Simple Science Experiments by Holly Homer, Rachel Miller, and Jamie Harrington, and 150 Screen-Free Activities for Kids by Asia Citro.
