As Birdie Boot Camp continues, I'm discovering that my child with sensory issues will get her hands messy if she considers the activity worth it.
Weekend before last, finger painting was a success.
This past weekend, shaving cream. A hit. As in, total and complete, knock-it-out-of-the-park hit. Probably the most fun she's had at boot camp yet.
See for yourself.
Checking things out a little bit tentatively.
Getting the hang of things.
Deciding that shaving cream is pretty dadgum fun.
And, of course, as with all fun things, a quick taste is needed. I am trying to prevent the tasting with my arm, which got slimed and then licked - a total failed effort on my part.
Shaving cream is not that tasty, but it sure is fun!
The good times didn't end here, though.
I'm not afraid to tell you we picked up the tray of foam, made it to the bathroom without touching any furniture (a small miracle!), and let her cover the shower walls. And coat them she did. While having a blast.
Best news of all, though? A couple of Lily's wonderful church buddies have told me they've noticed a difference in her focus and attention. She's participating and giving an activity a little more attention than usual. Music to a mama's ears.
And more messy fun to come...
