As you know, I am a big fan of sensory play. But sometimes, my Little Learner still mouths things. I try to come up with ideas that suit her during this mouthing phase and came up with this fun tub. The best part is that it’s edible! If your little one loves tasting things, this will definitely be a new favourite!
All you need is some blue jelly, food dye, coconut and some ocean figures. First I made some blue jelly which I left to set for four hours in the fridge. Once it was ready, I mixed it up with a spoon and placed it on one half of my tray.
Next I grabbed some desiccated coconut and yellow food dye. I mixed them together and added the coconut sand to the other half of the tray. Add some sea creatures and you are FINISHED!
As you can see, my little one year old loved this sensory play tub as much as me. Feeling the cold jelly water with her fingers and dropping the coconut sand was really exciting. She couldn’t help herself and had to have a taste!
