Do you ever wonder what clouds feel like? We ask ourselves this question often. The oldest kiddo says cotton candy. Our youngest daughter says shaving cream. Of course, she says shaving cream to most things. If she could have any toy in the world she would choose shaving cream. And so, here is our cloud sensory bin filled with shaving cream.
The only prep needed for this sensory bin is to mix water and liquid watercolors in squeeze bottles.
- Provide a plastic tub to kiddos.
- Hand over the squeeze bottle colors, glitter and shave cream.
- The eager Ed kiddos started by layering the shave cream. Then they added the coloring and stirred with craft sticks. Next was the glitter. The middle kiddo was very precise with her glitter placement. We discussed how clouds are made up of water and ice and how the colors and glitter represented that.
- Then they dug in with their hands! The idea of adding water beads was all theirs and it turned out to be a great addition. The beads sunk straight to the bottom through the shaving cream. They said this was like when rain formed as a rain cloud got too full.
