Blue Tub Sensory Play

We have been doing lots of sensory play this winter.
Baby Rex LOVED LOVED LOVED his blue themed goop tub. Now that Rex is a bit older I am trying to link multiple learning experience together. Color themed sensory tubs are a great and easy way to accomplish this. 

I painted the tub walls with washable Crayola paint while Rex was napping.
Added an assortment of blue toys and a double box batch of blue goop. 

He was very enthralled by the goop raining down and through his fingers.

I made the goop a little thicker today than last time we played. This proved to be an excellent fine motor muscle work out. Z-Rex really had to dig his fingers in to pick up the goop or any toys. 

Z-Rex couldn't get enough goop today. He played for over an hour!

Tips & Tricks:
  • Goop is made by mixing cornstarch with water
  • Add water slowly until desired consistency
  • If goop dries out while playing, just add a bit more water
  • I used too much food coloring today, Z slightly resembled Baby Smurf after playing. A long bubble bath afterwards took care of that.
