My son can spend hours play in the kitchen sink...making bubbles, changing the color of the water with food coloring, putting his tub toys in and out...but I wanted to try a different sensory activity with him.
You can do this with anything: flour, sand, sugar, rice....all you need are some small objects to put inside for him/her to investigate! I had some some colorful plastic shapes that we used in the flour.
I gave him lots of "tools" to use: a strainer, measuring spoons, ice tray (for sorting), and a measuing cup. We investigated all these tools together to see how they worked! Then I let him go to town!
He loved finding the shapes and having a specific place to put them.
Eventually we added water to the flour and made a complete mess!
