Even the youngest babies can explore with your help. All you need is:
- a ziploc
- shaving cream
- food coloring
- duct tape to reinforce the seal.
Babies can squish the bags and distribute the colors. So easy, so fun, smells clean, lots of sensory fun! Older babies can stick there hands in the shaving cream’s soft texture before sealing the bag.
This is just a different version of the potato flakes sensory bin. The material lends itself to tons of lesson ideas for older kids. Pick 5 letters, have your child dig with measuring cups and spoons to find the letter that you want to focus on. Since Brannon is only 1 here this is more focused on sensory play. We played with the soft, fluffy material and when he would show me a letter, I would define it. All you need is:
- 2 boxes of potato flakes
- bath time foam letters
- measuring cups
