One of the things I love about summer is the ability to take messy sensory play outside! I set the kids up with individual trays of corn starch, water, and washable paint. They started off pretty cautious, but gradually became more involved.
Emma had a storyline going with her toys. Lily mostly watched. For Johnny, it was all about the full-body sensory experience:
Both Johnny and Emma wound up with corn starch up to their elbows. Lily eventually got some on her hands, but still isn’t sure how she feels about it:
Everything hosed off easily at the end, and we’ll definitely do this again this summer – probably with more corn starch and water in each tray!
What is your favorite messy activity to take outside in the summertime?
