The weather is finally warm so that means we have been busy doing a lot of water play. My boys love the simplicity of scooping and pouring water and it's great for their fine motor development. Every time that we play with water, I like to add something new and interesting. New textures, new colors, and new sensory experiences. This time I added a variety of colorful buttons to make this buttons sensory soup.

For this buttons sensory soup, we used:

  • Water
  • Colorful buttons
  • Kitchen utensils - We like to use a ladle, a big spoon, a whisk, and bowl, but measuring cups and measuring spoons are great choices too!

I love sensory soups like this one because they are so easy to set up. Simply dump in the materials and go!

Then let the scooping, pouring, stirring, mixing, and fun begin! I love listening to the kids as they narrate while they are playing. This sensory activity was set up for my three year old, K, while his older brother was at school. K kept talking about making a button cake. He loves cooking so everything turns into some kind of food for him.
