When we need a quick and easy sensory activity for my kids, we always end up playing with soap foam. My kids just love the texture of it (so do I!) and it's really versatile. You can add all sorts of things to it, such as colors, scents, glitter, or other objects, to make an endless range of sensory bins. 

Since St. Patrick's Day was quickly approaching, I put together a St. Patrick's Day inspired sensory bin for the kids using green "sparkles" in the soap foam. However, it isn't specifically a St. Patrick's Day activity, simply because you could make the sparkles any color you wanted. We just chose green to go with the holiday.

Regardless, kids will love swirling their hands through this sparkle soap foam sensory bin.

Naturally, the kids couldn't wait to dive in and swirl the bubbles around and around. The addition of the sequins gave the soap foam a neat texture.

The boys started scooping for the sequins since after awhile, they get buried underneath the soap. It isn't that easy to pick up the sequins! But it is certainly a good fine motor challenge for the kids.
