Sensory Soup with Fresh Flowers

E bought me some beautiful flowers for my birthday this year. They looked wonderful in the kitchen and lasted a long time. But of course, they eventually started to fade.

When they did, I cut off the tops, put them into the water table with a little water, and made Sensory Soup with Fresh Flowers for N!

It was another one of those super simple sensory activities that were so much fun and kept N entertained for a long time.


(N was 1 year and 7 months old.)
