This workbox of the week idea is so simple to set up that you'll be wondering why you didn't do this before. Take a gallon-sized zip-lock bag and fill it with shaving cream. Seal the bag with tape and presto! Instant fun for your child.
You can add food coloring to the bag and have them mix colors together for science. Leave it white and have them practice writing their letters and numbers. Pick up some of those flat alphabet beads and have them look for the letters of their name. Add bits of playdoh for a texture experience.
