Sensory soups have been a favorite in our house for quite some time. What I love about sensory soups is that they are super simple to set up, encourage fine motor skills, and end up engaging the boys in hours of quiet sensory play. I recently made a LEGO sensory soup for my three year old and I have to admit that it is one of my favorites. It has the perfect punch of color from the LEGO and it encouraged so much learning and imaginative play. And goodness, it was so hard to narrow down the photos on this one! I had so many beautiful photos!

For this LEGO sensory soup water play idea, I used:

  • Water
  • LEGO bricks
  • Kitchen utensils - We always use a big bowl, a ladle, a whisk, and a large spoon. 

Simply dump the LEGO bricks into some water and serve it up to the kids!

Using kitchen utensils, such as the large spoons and a whisk, encourage lots of scooping, pouring, and measuring, which is great for fine motor development.

And I like I mentioned, there were too many beautiful photos to pick from so I'm sharing a bunch of the scooping and pouring close ups. They're just all too lovely not to share!

And don't forget to stir it all up! Stirring the LEGO around with the whisk ended up creating a lot of "music" or noise. Just adds a nice little auditory component to this sensory activity.
