Scoop the Limes - Toddler Water Play

Scoop the Limes. - Also known as Grandma Bought too Many Limes at Costco and Now we Need to Find Some Uses.

It’s true.

Sometimes the best activities come from ideas that happen organically.

Here, my mom purchased more limes than she could account for.

Since the mission was to scoop and transfer, I also knew that no limes would be wasted. After water play, we used the limes in our next 37 glasses of soda water. πŸ˜†

Even better?

What happened as my boys played, was simply magical. We began the water play using a ladle, and finished up with some other fabulous variations. All taken from our outdoor storage bin, of course!

Noodle Sensory Play

Last week we added noodles into our sensory play.

If you follow us on Instagram, you saw that the noodles we used were cooked, squishy, and a whole lot of messy, sensory play fun!

The boys pressed the noodles through the garlic press and sliced them through the egg cutter.

Although this cooked noodle sensory play was win, it was pretty much one and done. The cooked, colored noodles were tossed in the garbage shortly after the boys were finished playing.

So this time around, I was looking for something a little more sustainable for future use.

This time, we colored dry noodles and it was just as successful!
