Sensory play doesn’t have to be a hugely messy activity, even if you set it up inside!
Today we set up a little tub of bubbles, just for one, or maybe two!
We started with a small tub and some small measuring cups, scoops and spoons that come with all the kids medication. We set it up on a table covered with a towel and made sure we had a cloth near by for wiping hands and spills.
Then I added a small amount of water, just enough to barely cover the bottom of the tub. I squirted in quite a bit of detergent and threw in two bits of sponge. I told my big boy to squeeze the sponges and watch what happened.
He was delighted to see white foamy bubbles explode between his fingers! He squeezed and smooshed, and squashed the sponges until the whole tub was full of white foam.
We had a lovely time scooping and pouring and mixing the foam and because there was hardly any actual water involved there was no spills and not even much damp clothing.
