Beat the heat with a simple water sensory tub. We did the easiest activity using rosemary from our garden, a plastic tub and household items. In only three steps you can have your youngsters playing outside.
- Just snip the rosemary and soak it in water overnight.
- The next day strain the rosemary out, but keep the water.
- Put the water in a plastic bin and add more water. Give your kids some items from around the house to play in the water with (like a funnel, strainer and measuring cups).
Because the kids helped put this together, they will be more interested in playing in this water rather than just any ol’ water that came out of the garden hose.
Thank you, Anna, for this idea you posted on The Imagination Tree website. So glad we tried it.
