Do your kids love to get messy with fun, sensory activities? If you love sensory activities but don’t like the slime, or bubbles, or mess you will love Sensory soup!
Sensory Soup Play 2
Sensory Soup Play is a fun, hands-on way for kids to get their hands wet by exploring themed activities in pots or bins of water. This is a great activity to do in the kitchen on a towel on the floor, or in the backyard. I prefer this over other sensory activities because there are no extra ingredients you need to purchase to create this type of sensory play. Everything can be found in your kitchen or playroom!

The sky is the limit to the theme that you can come up with. There are so many fun themes and ideas you can choose from. You can create them from your children’s interests at the time, or to a themed unit study.

Check out these adorable ideas:
