Octopus Water Sensory Bin
what we used:
water bin or under the bed storage container
water of course
What we did:
I filled the bin with warm water. I then added a tiny bit of green food coloring. Then added our octopus water toys.
Simple is best at my house most days. As the mom to 3 I have found that my kids enjoy a simple setup with the chance to bring other items they want to playtime. We do not always do this but they do play like this most of the time.
You can see our large outside box behind the bin. It is full of toys. I let them pick and chose what else they want to play with. Water guns, water shooters, cups, bottles… All fun items to have for water play.
These little toy octopuses have been a favorite of Baby Brothers when on the deck lately. That is one reason I chose to set up a water bin around them. Instead of just running around with them he could put them in water.
This is also great to try out the classic sink or float experiment too. Color recognition and water explorations are also pluses for this bin.
Both little brother and baby brother had fun in this bin. Great for sibling bonding and for multi-ages. They are 3 yr and 1 yr.
So thrilled to have had a chance to work on it. Pop! Squirt! Splash! with some blogging friends. This book is packed full of simple, yet, oh so fun ideas for the kids.
