Water Sensory Bins

I love a good water sensory bin and this LEGO car wash sensory bin is no exception. When I had the idea I honestly couldn’t believe that I hadn’t though of it before! Of course! Washing LEGO! So fun! I have frozen lego before but never washed it like in this activity.

We used our DUPLO LEGO set for this activity. This was perfect because we had a number vehicles with that set to use in the activity. So many that there was a line up of cars to get into the car wash (pretty much exactly like a real car wash!)

The Best Sensory Play Kits for Kids

Play is at the core of learning during the early years and it can take many forms. One of the most important of these is sensory play because it engages all of a child’s senses (taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing) and has a enoumous positive impact on brain development.

Our Sensory Play Kits are a fun and easy way to keep your child engaged while at the same time capitalizing on the benefits of sensory play to nurture their mind!

How to Set Up Lego Car Wash Sensory Bin

  1. I wish I had thought about letting my toddler build the car wash themselves before doing this activity. For preschoolers, I would let them build it themselves. They can design their own car wash. You can show them this picture for inspiration.

  1. Using foam sheets create the foam washing brushes so iconic to car washes. I also created a small sign saying Car wash.

  1. Attached these to the front of the car wash using duct tape. NOTE: As my toddler played the adhesive on the tape started to give and I eventually removed the the foam washing brushes. But it did not effect how much fun they still had with this activity.

  1. Next prepare two squeeze bottles. The first will have a small amount of washable brown paint and the rest with water to create the “dirt” your child will put on the cars and trucks. (If you are doing this activity outside your could create a watery mud solution for them to squeeze on. The second squeeze bottle will have soapy water in it.

  1. Hand your toddler or preschooler a few sponges and let them play!

How They Played with the LEGO Car Wash Sensory Bin

First off, this was an instant hit and I had to refill the squeeze bottles with “dirt” and soap several times. I didn’t want to give them larger containers of these materials since it would have created a large mess. The squeeze bottles are a great fine motor tool and they also helped to contain the mess.

They loved dirty up the cars and then scrubbing them clean again with the soapy water and sponges! We did this activity inside in the winter but I plan to do it again this summer outside!

Age Suitability

This activity is good for kids 2.5 years and up . My kids are 3, 3, and 6 year old.

Outdoor Activities

Contrary to popular belief I do not always have an activity planned for my kids. Sometimes we go outside and I just tell them to go play. They may protest at first claim to be bored and insist that I play with them but usually that will pass and their boredom is overturned but some distraction or another and they are off and playing.

Other days, I like to have something easy planned that will set up the play. That is how I view the activities we do as stepping stones to free play. They – activities – are tools I use to help me parent. An activity that last 5 minutes is more than successful when immediately after they are done they run off and play on their own. This stick ladder is one such activity!

How to Set Up Stick Ladder

The set up for this activity is beyond easy. First have your toddler or preschooler gather up some large sticks with you either along a walk in the neighborhood or from your backyard. My backyard is lined with trees and often has small branches and sticks that have fallen lying around.

Next, line up your sticks in line parallel to each other. Place the sticks apart with enough room for your toddlers or preschoolers to be able to comfortably walk or run through without stepping on the sticks.

Finally, invite them to walk, run crawl over the sticks!

How They Played Stick Ladder

I knew this would be fun but I did not expect it to be as fun as it was for my toddlers! They ran through this mini obstacle courses until they were breathless! I challenged them to walk like different animals over the sticks. Hop like a kangaroo, slither like a snake, prowl like a lion.

They tried to go over them side ways, backwards (carefully) and on all fours! This turned into a wonderful outdoor gross motor activity!

Age Suitability

This activity is good for kids 2 years and up. My kids are 3, 3, and 6 year old.
