Soapy Water Sensory Box

Being the little fish that he his, Baby Bear loved when I filled his sensory box with soapy water.

I laid out some towels on the floor, poured a little dish soap into the box, and added warm water.

I threw in a few little cups for Baby Bear to play with since he loves pouring so much.

I also filled a couple of travel bottles with colored water and helped Baby Bear spray and squirt them into the tub. We enjoyed watching the suds turn blue and yellow. This, of course, led to the water turning a shade of green, which was also pretty cool.

The travel bottles were a little difficult to spray and squirt, so I took the caps off and gave Baby Bear a large medicine dropper to use to transfer the colored water into the tub. This was great practice for his fine motor skills!

*Sigh* It was bound to happen with a tub full of water. ;)


  1. I love that he hopped in! My daughter would have done the same thing. I'm hosting a link party starting tonight at 8 and I'd love it if you stopped by and linked this up

  2. Thank you for sharing this at Whimsy Wednesday at The NY Melrose Family. I look forward to each post that you write!
