There’s nothing better than this quick and easy sand foam sensory sand! My favorite sensory activities are ones I can create with what I already have in the house. This super simple sand recipe uses just two ingredients, shaving cream and sand! It’s a fun sensory recipe from our Sensory Recipes collection.
SAND FOAM SENSORY PLAY FOR KIDS!
I always keep a can of cheap foaming shaving cream in my activity closet for quick messy sensory play! Regular old sandbox sand is perfect or like us, if you brought back sand from the beach, use it!

For us, this cool sensory sand is best enjoyed with trucks! A small bowl of sand foam makes for very generous piles to move with front loaders.
If your child dislikes getting hands messy (as does mine) provide him with spoons, trucks and other tools to help minimize the mess and increase enjoyment for everyone. I did get my hands messy to help make big piles or smooth out roads and that is when the pictures ended!
