Messy Fun!

The first morning on spring break I hurried and did school with Ella and then thought it would be fun to make a mess. The week prior Ella, Zeke and I had made a stop at The Dollar Tree and in addition to all the other stuff I bought I got a can of shaving cream. I was hoping that this would give Zeke an opportunity to have fun and work on his sensory issues. 

All the kids got their own cookie sheet with a big pile of shaving cream and a spatula to push it around and a toy to play with. 

Jack is the exact opposite of Zeke....he LOVES to get messy and touching weird things does not freak him out in the least! 

Zeke drove his car around the outside of the cookie sheet. 

Jack stuck his hands right in and started squishing it around. 

Zeke was pretty apprehensive about the whole thing. I think it helped him seeing all his siblings playing though. If it had just been him and Ella I think he would have been done a lot quicker. 

Even Owen wasn't sure about getting all messy! 

After a few minutes this is how I found Jack! 

Ella spread her all out flat like a frosting a cake. I tried to show her how she could write her name in it with her finger, but she DID NOT want to mess it up! 

Zeke...clean as can be! 

Owen finally started getting his hands messy! 

I wrote Zeke's name in his cream! 

That's the spirit Owen! 

Then his happened! He is a total nut job!

Seriously by the time we were finished he was completely covered from the top of his head down to his waistband! 

That's when we moved the messy fun up to the shower...trays and all. 

Look at that cute tooshie! As you can imagine the shower was a bit crowded with 4 kids and 3 trays....Owen didn't want his tray. It was tons of fun and a great way to kick off Spring Break!
