Red, White, and Blue Beach Sensory Play Sink
Simple Summer Sensory Play
This was really fun to put together especially since we will be taking a beach vacation for the 4th of July and there will be plenty of celebrations and festivities happening on Cape Cod while we are there! I actually set this up for my husband and son to play with while I ran errands. My husband was having so much fun that he didn’t bother to take photos since his hands were pretty goopy! At least I can share the set up! Remember it’s as simple as fill, play and drain!
Easy, sink friendly beach sand for beach sensory play! This is simply flour and oil! Take about 5 -6 cups of flour and mix in a cup of oil. That’s it and you have some wonderful, non toxic sand to mold and play with just like beach sand. I added a little container and spoon to make sand castles with as well as some shells. I heard rumors of hands being buried and so forth! Simply wash away when done! This is toddler safe too!
The other side of the sink was filled with water and a few squirts of blue food coloring. My husband sliced up some pool noodle boats with a serrated knife. I gave each one an American flag sail for the 4th of July. Also, I suggested they could try some pool noodle boat races. From the looks of it, they had some fun! Again, simply drain and save the boats for another day!
Our beach sensory play clean up was really easy. I simply washed it all down the drain. If you need to you can scoop out the cloud and throw it away. I could definitely tell the beach sensory play was fun. Sand made it over into the water and vice versa. There was talk of pirates, buried shells, sail boat races and more!
We loved our Beach Sensory Sink play this weekend.
