Outdoor Activity For Kids:

Ocean soap foam sensory bin

Sensory activities, like soap foam bins, are some of my kids’ favorite activities to play with.

They love pouring and scooping, and this activity adds the ocean theme which makes it even more fun.

You can add any color or figurines to the soap foam to change it up. You can do it themed according to the holidays or your kids’ favorite animals.
