So, I put together our foam letters and sprayed a layer of shaving cream onto a bin and this set up came to life!

How to teach kids letters
This easy activity involved a bit of learning through play.
Here is how I put this simple kids shaving cream activity together:
Add foam letters into a bin.
Then, spray a bit of shaving cream on the opposite side of where you placed the foam letters.
Sandwich the foam letters together with shaving cream in between to create cream letters.
