How to Help My Child Learn - Sensory Activity Series - Water Play: 2-3 years

Did you get a chance to try out the texture play with your child last week? In either case, join us for the next activity in the sensory activity series.

 

Activity: Your toddler messing with their toys must be an everyday scene, right? How about getting a toy wash done by those little hands?  Not only  will this leave your toys squeaky-clean, it is a great sensory activity as well!

 

How it will help your child: This activity enhances their fine-motor skills, improves hand-eye co-ordination and their tactile abilities. 

 

What do you need: Water spray, water, washable toys, some soapy water in a tub and a large towel

 

How to set it up

 

  • If you are planning to do this activity indoors, take a big plastic sheet and spread it on the floor under the tub to keep it safe from the spills.
  • This activity can be done outdoors too.

 

How to play with your child

 

Put all the toys in the soapy water and let your child wash each toy by rubbing it. Now encourage them to pick one toy at a time and rinse the soap bubbles using the water spray. If the water spray is new to them demonstrate how to use it. Let them practice spraying a couple of times. Help them clean all the corners and small areas of the toy if they miss any.
