Shaving Cream Puffy Paint Ghost & Spider Web

Henry and I found something to do with the shaving cream puffy paint papers that George made! We extended it into ghosts and spider webs to display for Halloween!   Of course, after Henry heard that George got to play in shaving cream, he wanted to play as well. So, again, we got messy. Very, […]
