A day for outdoor play! Hope everyone has had a chance to enjoy some sunshine today. We have been busy playing outside. This coloured play foam was perfect for outdoor play today. I saw this on Emma’s page @lifewithtinyhumans and was keen to try it out ourselves. It was easy to make and fun to play with. Thanks Emma for the inspiration. We just mixed up some washing up liquid, food colouring and a small bit of water in a mixer and then popped the various colours into our tuff tray. We enjoyed playing with the various colours and of course mixing them together. We returned to it later in the day, added in extra water and had great fun splashing about too. Simple pleasures!🌈 💦☀️🌈💦☀️🌈 #outdoorplay #sunshine #waterplay #playfoam #sensoryplay #keepitsimple #playon #happythursday ... See more
