Grace loves all of the sensory activities we've been doing lately and with the number of hits I've been getting on the posts about the other activities we've done, I'm guessing your kids do too! I'm excited to share this new one with you, it's so easy and fun. You probably already have all of the supplies in your kitchen! It seems like the simplest activities are the biggest hits in our house.
A casserole dish
Food coloring (optional)
Fill your casserole dish about half way full of water and add a few squirts of dish soap. Add food coloring for fun if you want to, we made our mixture purple! Show your toddler how to blow through the straw into the water to create bubbles!
She loved that the bubbles stuck to her hands and didn't break easily.
She kept asking "more mama, more!" and would show me any empty spaces in the dish.
She loved sticking her hands and arms in the bubbles.
She figured out that by blowing on the bubbles, they would move and she could create little ponds.
The table did get pretty wet and she needed a clothing change afterwards but it wasn't hard to clean up. Plus the table got very clean!
This kept her entertained for about 20 minutes and she has asked to play it several more times since then. I classify that as a success in our house!
