4th of July sensory activities are so easy to set up for our youngest explorers! Have you ever set up a sensory sink? It’s a must try with your toddler or preschool age kids. Our red, white, and blue 4th July beach sensory sink is easy to make, kid safe, and even easier to clean up. Simple sensory play is a real treat!

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!

MAKE HOMEMADE CLOUD DOUGH

Cloud dough is simply flour and oil! Take about 5 -6 cups of flour and mix in a cup of oil. That’s it for an amazingly silky and moldable sensory play material.

It’s 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. Simply wash away when done! This is definitely toddler safe too!

4TH of JULY SENSORY ACTIVITY FOR KIDS

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.

If you don’t have a double sink like we do, simply fill a plastic container with your blue water and set it next to the cloud dough part of the sink. It will probably get a little messy!

 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! For another sensory sink idea perfect for the 4th, check this one out!

We  loved our Beach Sensory Sink play this weekend.
