Animal Wash Sensory Play
Quick And Simple Water Play
Water Play Is Great For Any Day!
What do you do with a not so normal 6am wake up and you have done just about everything else you can think of, have had way to much coffee and are out of ideas? You make an animal wash water sensory play bin to go along with one of your favorite books! Well at least that is what we do! Around here we wash lots of things for easy and quick animal wash water sensory play!
Animal Wash Sensory Play Bin
‘Twas the Day Before Zoo Day by Catherine Ipcizade is a book we purchased last summer on vacation and has become a favorite all year long. It prompted a fun family trip to the Bronx Zoo too! Our favorite part of the book is the wash down the animals get before the opening zoo day. What better than to create our own wash with soapy bubbles!
Animal Wash Water Sensory Bin Easy Set Up And Play
Grab your supplies! A large bin for play, sponges, animals and of course soap! Liam mixed our bubbles with a wire whisk for a bit of added sensory work! Once we had a frothy mix of suds, we tossed in the animals and sponges.
Liam usually needs a bit of direction and purpose to his play. I suggested he wash and scrub each animal with both types of sponges. Note he doesn’t like super bubbles so we keep it light on the bubbles, but you can whip up a huge frothy load if your child enjoys lots of bubbles! Why not take it into the bathtub too for less mess!
Of course, the animals needed to be rinsed, so I set out a plastic tub of fresh water and towel for them to dry off on too! This is where the fun began as he managed to tip over this whole bucket! We raced around for towels, cleaned up and finished the play!Simple water sensory play is the way to go! Often we overlook the obvious play but it is the best play! All kids love bubbles and washing sensory play is great practice too!
