Shaving foam

We had so much fun in Daisy Room on Thursday last week, whilst exploring the shaving foam. We decided to try a science experiment, using clear jars and filling them with water, before adding shaving foam to the top. The children then used pipettes with support to squeeze different food colouring into the shaving foam. I encouraged the children to watch the jar as the droplets of colour began to fall through the shaving foam into the water like rain. The older children loved this activity and really engaged, listening to the instructions and although they needed a little bit of help, they showed a real interest. The younger ones loved watching the ‘rain’ fall through the ‘clouds’ too, and afterwards we added lots of shaving foam to the table to let all of the children explore!
