Dinosaur Cupcake Party
I just couldn't take these itty bitty dino party hats off without one last use in an invitation to play and explore.
To set this invitation I placed shaving cream mixed with Colorations Liquid Water Colors from Discount School Supply in cupcake tins, craft sticks as candles, sprinkles, cupcake liners, dinosaurs, all in the sensory bin. These dinosaurs were ready to stomp and chomp through the cupcakes.
Shaving cream is a material with endless possibilities that heightens a new depth of sensory play. When the children play with a sensory materials such as shaving cream, they are playing with a material that has a texture which stimulate the mind and body through the tactile experience. Children learn best and retain the most information when they engage their senses.
