This was so much fun putting together and my son had just as much fun playing with it.  I love activities that are not a headache for me and my kids love.  This did take me preparing the frozen ice with the frogs in them ahead of time but everything else I just got out that day as we headed outside.  Daddy was home this day too and it is always easier to set up activities when he can help keep an eye on the boys.  For the large frozen ice cubes I used small to med sized plastic bowls.  I added water, food coloring, and the plastic frogs.  I put them in the freezer a few days before we set this up.

This is our day.

He said he had to be in the picture today!  He was excited to play in our 1st sensory pond.
What we used: 
A bottle of colored water, a bowl of glitter water, a cup with pine scent essential oils, little rocks we had, sticks we gathered, toy boats( my sons choice to add), and I took some foam sheets and cut out lily pads.  Oh I see he had a net too. 

What I did: 

I filled up the box with plain water.  Next I let him start adding all the fun sensory items in the box to the water. Then let him play!

I thought the pine scent would work to add an outside nature scent to the pond.  I don’t think even if I had “pond scent” I would have added that,lol.

He loved the glitter.

Colored water seems to make most things even better.

Now he had his sensory pond all set up.  He was ready to get his hands in and play.

The only messy part was the glitter but the glitter made it more fun for the eyes!

He loved the lily pads!    I had to make him a few more while playing. I was glad he liked them because I am no artist.

We had never made a sensory pond before and I had a lot of fun setting it up and watching him as he played.  I hope you and your family can enjoy one too.
