Water table activities are a great way for children to learn through sensory play. And you don’t just have to fill them with sand or water. Sensory ingredients like pasta, ice and even shaving foam can lead to hours of fun and laughter.

72 mini dinosaurs to excavate!

Sensory Tub Painting – No Time For Flash Cards
Sensory Tub Painting – No Time For Flash Cards – My kiddos would love this, when they paint indoors they always end up with the paint all up their arms from squishing it in their fingers! I think I might wait until it’s warm enough to do this outside on the deck though!
