This was an activity I sat out as one of the kids "invitations to play" a few weeks ago. Both my three year old and one year old had so much fun playing with the foam shapes and water that it definitely deserved it's own post!!
I love activities like this because they allow so much room for creativity and design with little ones. I initially cut out a bunch of shapes for them, but as they were playing around, my daughter kept requesting more and more and more.....and it just got more and more fun!
I leave this activity out in our playroom all the time now and it's a frequent play option for them.
So simple, but so fun!
Just cut out a bunch of shapes from foam.
Hand over a cup of water and a paint brush.
And let the little ones play and create!
Keep your scissors handy, because, if your kids are like mine, they will have tons of ideas for you!!
