Apple Sensory Soup {Water Sensory Play}

The other day I mentioned that we have been doing a lot of fine motor water sensory play activities lately, primarily in the form of sensory soups. As part of our fall festivities, I created a fall leaves sensory soup, which was a huge hit. So I put together this apple themed sensory soup as a follow up.

Apple Themed Fine Motor Sensory Bin Idea for Kids

This apple sensory soup bin was just as quick and easy to prepare as the fall leaves one. I used:

  • Water
  • Liquid watercolors - I used green, as you can see. If you don't have liquid watercolors, then try using food coloring instead.
  • Acrylic apples - I found these at Michaels last year, but I haven't been able to find them this year or anywhere online. You could always substitute red and green glass stones for the apples.
  • Kitchen stuff - I added a whisk, a ladle, a large spoon, and a white plastic bowl. You can add measuring cups or measuring spoons too.

As simple as this sensory bin is, it certainly was engaging! I love the way the apples look in the water. They look crisp and refreshing just like a real apple.

I also loved that this sensory bin encouraged lots of fine motor practice. All that scooping, pouring, stirring, mixing, whisking - it's all great for fine motor development!
