Simple science and sensory play are always a hit at my house.  The kids love exploring and playing.  One afternoon I set them up a simple soapy potions mixing station.  They could explore the science of color mixing while enjoying their senses.  This is also a great way to

One afternoon the kids kept telling me how bored they were.  All of my suggestions for playtime seemed to be a miss with them. Finally after a little extra thought I came up with a fun sponge bomb painting activity for us to try. This is a great sensory
