Fall weather has just started to blow in around here but I did manage to squeeze in one final summer activity last week. I pulled out Henry’s water bin and decided it was time for some new objects to play with. If you looked closely at the pictures from Henry’s last water sensory bin you may have noticed some blue circles. Those rings are pieces of a pool noodle and since they are colorful, easy for little hands to manage and float I think they are perfect for the water bin. When I spotted pool noodles on clearance at the end of the season I picked up a few more.
The pool noodles are easy to cut with a serrated knife and I cut off slices that are about 1″ thick. All of those colored rings reminded me of Froot Loops so I decided to go with the cereal theme and throw in some bowls and a large spoon.
Henry has no idea what Froot Loops actually are but he did have lots of fun scooping and pouring.
If the weather in your area is a little too chilly to play with water outside you could always play in the bathtub!
