    Please tell me what I can use the shaving cream for other than if I had a late night and came to school in the clothes I partied in?

    I've never heard of using shaving cream for anything other than shaving. How bizarre!

    In pre-k we put shaving cream on the tables and the kids practice writing their name or writing letters/numbers in it with their finger- tactile/kinesthetic learning. Afterwards, we have them scrub the table with it then we clean it off. Smells good and the tables are clean.

    Shaving cream is great for cleaning desks! I've never thought of it for carpet stains-maybe I'll try it at home, too. I have a almost 4 year old. Need I say more? :)

    i also had the experience of letting kids write in shaving cream. you could smell it on the whole floor!!! but it really really cleaned the desks well (and these were supposed to be being cleaned daily by the custodians...)

    Even at secondary level, the kids can have a great time with shaving cream. It's an amazing thing to watch.

    and all I do is shave with it (well not since school ended)
    I do go to the barber and get a shave with my hair cut (if women can go to a spa, we men can go get a shave)

    I will take a can to school this year.

    next time you're in a gas station ask when they are going to replace their window washer things. They work great for cleaning up the leftover shaving cream residue!

    Shaving cream is also good for art projects too!

    I just used it to make paper for bookmarks I'm giving students the first day of school.

    Fill a cookie sheet with shaving cream. Drop dots of food coloring and swirl with a toothpick.

    Then, put a piece of paper on top of the shaving cream and pat it. Take the paper off, scrape the shaving cream off with a ruler and wipe the rest with a paper towel.

    Let the paper dry!

    The paper ends up getting a cool marble-like, swirly appearance.

    Shaving Cream also takes off the sticky marks left on the desktops from contact paper or tape from name tags. A little handwriting practice in the cream and the desks are shiny!

    any paper will work but a heavier weight paper works the best (construction or cardstock)

    Yep!

    I prefer cardstock. It doesn't seem to soak up the shaving cream like construction paper or regular paper does.

    clorox would have the disinfectant in it but if you're looking for overall clean you cant beat 94-cents and the smell of a freshly shaved man in your room all day :eek:

    Don't forget those Vis-a-Vis pens for transparencies and a small spray bottle with water to clean it off with.

    And the best tip I have ever gotten, an old phone book to dry the transparencies in. Just slip the wet ones between the pages and remove in a few hours. you can use the book over and over again. And its good for the environment....cause you aren't throwing the old thing away.... I have four in the house that will be put to good use.
