Toddler Crafts for Easter: Foam Paint Eggs

I love this craft. So easy, so cheap and tons of fun. You are going to make your own foam paint out of glue and shaving cream and use it to paint Easter Eggs.

Here's how to make the foam paint:

- 1-2 tbsp Water based paint
-Shaving Cream--You want traditional Barbasol, not the gels that foam (unscented if you can find it)

Combine equal amounts of glue and shaving cream in a bowl, add paint and use the foam to paint paper cut out in the shape of an egg.

Because of the glue in the foam paint, be sure to wipe up any spills before it dries.

The Perfect Easter Song and Dance: The Bunny Hop

Hoppy Spring! Hoppy almost Easter.

We've been doing The Bunny Hop all week around here and watching cute bunny videos on Youtube.

The bunny hop is an easy dance and a great gross motor activity for young kids.

For your viewing pleasure....

This is super cute with a real bunny hopping to the music of The Bunny Hop.

And here's the original song and dance from the way back machine on Youtube.
