In honor of National Occupational Therapy Month, Occupational Therapy Assistant Travis Ethen is sharing how to play Shaving Cream Hangman. This activity is a fun twist on an old classic and full of sensory benefits!
Here’s what you need to play Shaving Cream Hangman with your kids:
Start by coming up with a hangman puzzle. Next, smear a layer of shaving cream on your mirror or disposable casserole pan.
Have your child guess letters by drawing them in the shaving cream. Fill the letters in accordingly on the hangman puzzle.
Continue until they’ve either solved the puzzle or they’ve been hung!
The best part of Shaving Cream Hangman is that it’s simple and rich in sensory benefits.
