One of our favorite activities for toddlers and preschoolers is soap and water sensory play. It’s soothing, fun, and super easy to clean up. Plus, you don’t need a lot of space for this!

I think I can now safely say summer is here to stay. While most of the rest of the country had been experiencing a heat wave, we continued to experience cool, damp days. No longer! We are now in the 80s and 90s and loving summertime.
I knew we’d be spending a lot of time outdoors, so I looked for ways to add more sensory to our outdoor play. I decided to create a dishwashing station with soap and water.
I brought some of our kids kitchen utensils outside.
We were using shaving cream for an art project at the picnic table, so I decided to squirt some into the soapy water to add some thickness and texture.
The preschoolers went to work getting everything sudsy.
And then leaves from nearby plants were added.
“We’re making soup!”
The sink became a soup factory.
They played with this our entire outdoor time. When we were ready to go inside, we just hosed everything down. Simple as that!
