Okay so I wasn't going to really sell the little Bear. But he was driving his Mama Bear BONKERS!!
He was running and jumping all over the place. If you can just visualize for a moment him bouncing around like a bouncy ball. It was a lot like...Ping, Ping, Ping!!!! I was starting to get exhausted. So after heavily considering his lucrative and entertaining career in the circus business, I settled for a small consult with Pinterest instead.
For those of you who are not familiar with this Pinterest thing, it is Highly addictive. It is like a drug. Like Catnip for People. And just as addictive as CRACK!!It makes crafters out of the artistically challenged.
Pinterest is here to help. So I popped open the laptop and consulted my file on Kid Crafts. I found one on making Fluffy-Sandy-Foam Dough. It only takes two ingredients, and I had both on hand. Cornstarch, and Shaving Cream. After this experiment the only tip I suggest is make sure you like the smell of the shave cream or you will want to barf the entire time.
So I pulled out the big cookie sheet looking pan. (It is actually a large oil drip pan that I got at Wal-Mart for uber cheap.) It was something that I picked up a long time ago for fun magnet crafts and stuff to do with Baby Bear. It is perfect. It cleans up easily and to put it away I just slide it behind a bookcase. ;0D So I got out the pan and two ingredients and of course grabbed the bear.
By this time my little man was getting very excited about the un-known little adventure we were about to have. I dumped out the can of cornstarch, and started adding the shaving cream generously.
So I moved him onto the pan, and the outcome of the mess was less of a messy mess. ;0D
He was really enjoying himself. And the stuff isn't wet. It is more like sand with a little water on it. But if you squeeze it to hard it crumbles back into a sandy powder. It is a lot of fun.
He really liked having his picture taken and showing me his mess.
Then he started having me bury his hands and feet. I love this stuff because it just wipes off afterwards.
Update 1/20/14- Do not store this item. I put this stuff back into the container when I was done and left it on the dinning table. I forgot about it, and didn't open it again until a few weeks ago. Well..... The mold was a special kind of gross. Ewwwwww Yah maybe you can use it again for a couple days. But no longer than that. lol My bad!!!! lol
