Earth Day Sensory Activity: The Bath

I am a huge fan of integrating important concepts into our every day life and making it fun. So, today we had our inaugural Earth Day Themed Bath. The bath was a fun and relaxed way to begin conversation around the importance of being environmentally responsible.

Here is a list of what we included:

  1. Bubbles
  2. Cups for pouring
  3. The Earth Ball by Planet Earth
  4. 11″ Earth Latex Balloons
  5. Green and Blue Glow Sticks

The bath was different and therefore very fun. The glow sticks actually turned out to be a surprising fine motor exercise. The “sticks” are actually “bracelets” that fit end to end. Watching my son work patiently and so focused was a treat for me and my husband.

Earth Day is new to my son. So, figuring out where to start with such a big topic is tough. I started by simply talking about the day. My mistake was getting too detailed too quick. I realized this much when I heard my husband talking with my son explaining that “Earth Day means taking care of our things”. That is exactly what it means – being responsible and respectful of ourselves, of others and our environment. We’ll get to the more tangible pieces of Earth Day soon enough.

Thank you for stopping by my blog! I hope we inspired you today!

*Please note that these balloons can get slippery, best to limit the number and to, as usual, keep a close eye on your children in the bath. Also, when using balloons, if not blown up or you have remnants of a popped one, a choking hazard exists.
