This Green Sensory Soup is so much fun to dive in and let the kids have fun with messy play!

Water play is one of our favorite sensory activities next to those using baking soda and vinegar {like this recent St. Patrick’s Day version}. They only require simple materials and are very engaging for my kids – and most kids I know.

For today’s activity, I made a Green Sensory Soup for N to explore.

We don’t “officially” learn specific colors, but we did do a Yellow Sensory Bin several months ago. This time, I stuck to green just for fun – but of course, it was also an opportunity for N to explore his concept of the color green.

Be certain to check out our Spring Sensory Bin as well!

Sensory activities always tend to be a big hit with the kids because it’s just fun to feel things and learn. This sensory activity for kids is a unique way to also combine learning about the color green, too.

Even though it’s something that I can easily set up quickly, I love to ask the kids to find fun green objects that they can add to it as well. This makes them excited to help and be a part of the learning activities that we plan out and do.

Recommended Color Books for Toddlers

Materials for Green Sensory Soup

N got to put the fizzy tub color tablets into the water for the first time. We watched the blue and yellow mix, and I explained what was happening.

Then we put the green items into the water table, and N didn’t waste any time before diving right in.

He particularly enjoyed exploring the green plastic egg, and he ended up giving the squeeze bottle a new lid 🙂

The squeeze bottle was filled with plain water this time, but that didn’t take anything away from how fun it is to squeeze.

and he spent some time amusing himself pretending to drink the water. {As opposed to actually drinking the water, as he’s tried to do frequently until just recently.} He thought that was pretty hilarious 🙂

Once again, an activity that took only minutes to set up kept my little guy busy for almost 20 minutes – always a win in my book!
