Gather all your small, waterproof, plastic or rubber animals and toys and give them a soapy bath. You can do this in the bathtub or put the animals in a large storage bin, a large bowl, or in a water play table, if you have one.
If you are able to get outside for this activity, then have your child get the animals all muddy or dirty first as a bonus sensory activity and then actually wash them.
Make sure you use tear-free baby shampoo so that this activity doesn't end in tears.
Give your kid some extra sensory materials (aka props) to help with animal bath time:
- a sponge
- an old toothbrush
- a scrub brush (such as for the bathtub or for the kitchen)
- a washcloth
- a loofah
And don't forget to have a towel nearby!
Don't forget to use the hashtag #52weeksofsensory and tag @highchairchronicles if you post any pictures on social media!
