Today I've got a fun and easy sensory play and fine motor practice activity as part of our color and shape preschool unit. For this activity, I wanted my daughters to work on pinching a medicine dropper. We did this at the last minute before bed. I don't usually do messy play while daddy is home because he can't tolerate it like I can. It was nice to have him there so we could each help a little one with squeezing the dropper.
- 13x9 glass pan (doesn't have to be glass but I had it on hand and knew the girls would be supervised)
- Drops of food coloring
- Baking Soda
- Medicine Droppers
First, I put different color food coloring drops all around the pan.
