Easter Sensory Bin Water Play Activity
Setting up a good sensory bin for my girls is probably something we do more than twice a week!

Water Play Sensory Activities for Preschoolers
Preschoolers can practice all that toddlers play and learn and more!
Instead of counting from 1-5 eggs they can explore even more numbers.
What about colors?
They can also learn about colors and color mixing.
Change the eggs to include two colors on the bottom and top.
For example, add a yellow top and a blue bottom.
Talk about what color comes out by adding in one of their green toys.
This is great for remembering and learning quickly by visually seeing it!
