This week the children have been exploring the reaction between shaving cream and food dye. 

They placed drops of food dye onto the black outdoor play and then assisted the educators to squirt shaving cream all over the tray.

They watched in wonderment as the colours started to mix with the foam.  The educators and children then hid little dinosaurs within the foam and covered them up more. 

The children then used small tongs to try and find the dinosaurs that were hidden. This experience helped the children focus on their fine motor skills.

As they found the dinosaurs, they mixed more colours together to end up with rainbow foam. The children then used their hands to create more colours within the foam. 

They all seemed to really enjoy this activity as they kept asking to do it again.
