Sand and Water Sensory Tables
Have a sand and water table set up. For the water table, use: blue food colouring, seashells, plastic fish, boats, etc. For the sand table, include: seashells, buckets, shovels, container with lids, plastic crabs, small rocks, etc. Just use what you have available in the house and let your child explore!
