Green Tub Sensory Play

We are continuing to work on colors at out house. One of the easiest and most fun ways is with a color themed sensory play tub.
Since it is so close to St. Patrick's Day I opted for shamrocks on the walls with washable paint.

This was Baby Rex's first time playing with a large amount of shaving cream. 
He was extremely intrigued by the consistency   

Baby Rex was quickly COVERED with green shaving cream, loving every second of it.I dyed the shaving cream with food coloring beforehand then drizzled a bit of washable paint on top for Rex to mix in himself. 

 After thoroughly exploring the shaving cream for a while I added a few green toys I had gathered from around the house. However the shaving cream was far more exciting as Rex had little interest in his everyday toys.

As his play naturally began winding down, I turned on the faucet to fill the tub up a bit. The green dye and paint turned the water green while the melting shaving cream was fun to splash in. This is a great way to turn one set up into two different sensory play experiences. 


Baby Rex had a GREAT time playing with shaving cream today and painting the tub walls. I used white construction paper to save some of his artistic creations. Maybe we will use them for a future project, who knows?
