Water Activities for Kids


You probably already know that we love sensory activities around here. We don’t mind a good mess, and we’ve tried lots of different sensory materials.

N is a particularly big fan. It works out great because most of our water activities {particularly those we’ve done most recently} are appropriate for both kids, despite their age difference, and they keep them busy for quite a long time. Afterwards, there’s usually no major clean up, and all the kids need are some dry clothes – or not even that, depending on the temperature.
