Brooks has been very interested in Finding Nemo, Fishing, Turtles, Whales, and Octopuses. I have been wanting to make him items for a sensory bin for a while and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to make him a sea themed sensory bin! We made our own Kinetic Sand using the recipe from Hello Bello that Chloe shared via this reel on our Instagram. We added blue food coloring to the oil and then more drops to the sand mixture once combined to get a “sea” color for our sand.
Brooks LOVED the animals and telling us what they were, Nem(Nemo), Turt(Turtle), Shar(Shark), Wha(Whale), Oct(Octopus)! He had so much fun with the sand too! This is a hit that will be played with for years to come!
These creatures are great with kinetic sand, in a sandbox, or with rice for lots of sensory play and experiences. Kinetic sand is always so much fun and the adults here like to play with it just as much as the littles! Making our own was a hit too, Brooks LOVES dumping and mixing!
You can find these sea creatures to add to your sensory bins or sandboxes, here.
