Flower Potion Sensory Exploration

Posted on 06/15/20 by Amanda in Early Childhood

 

Sensory play doesn't need extensive set up or special materials. Use what you have and what you know your child likes. We love baking soda and vinegar (and the "explosions" they make) so we make sure to have that on hand.

To create floral potions, here's what we used:

  • Recycled applesauce cups filled with color water, baking soda, oil, and vinegar
  • Donut pan to create the potions
  • Fake and real flowers
  • Gems
  • Sticks for stirring, scoops of different sizes, spoon, and pipettes

There is no right or wrong way to play. If you're able to provide multiple materials to play with, great. If not, that's okay, too! Kids are imaginative and will use what they have. If something doesn't work this time, involve your child in the planning of your next sensory experience. Perhaps add soap, water beads, or rocks.

A trip to the dollar store is the best way to increase your stores of materials for sensory play. Get creative!

Get inspiration from these blogs, using dollar store supplies to the fullest:
