I wanted to surprise Rosie and Jewel with a fun activity when they woke up from their nap yesterday, so I set up a fun sensory pool. This one had a Princess theme.
Toddler Princess Pool Party
This pool was a lot like our Princess bath, except we took it outside.
I colored the water red using food coloring. Since the pool is blue, I thought it would give the illusion that the water was purple. It definitely did!
Then I added imitation flowers, fancy garland, gems, and rose scented bath oil.
Rosie and Jewel were greeted by a few of their favorite Princess friends
Crowns and wands were waiting for them as well
The girls were so excited to play in the simple princess world I had created
They spent the afternoon getting lost in the magical world of make believe while staying cool, too!
Jewel is still a wee little for imaginative play, but she had lots of fun exploring and splashing in the seemingly purple water.
Next time you fill up your play pool, why not add a fun theme and create an outdoor sensory pool? Sensory pools are filled with sensory exploration, and the possibilities for what you could create are endless!
I just love the looks on their faces here! Rosie's is filled with happiness, and Jewel's is filled with awe.
A simple way to beat the heat and have fun this Summer!
We have also created an Ocean Sensory Pool using pasta . Creating sensory pools is a great way to explore and discover in the warmer months. Any of our themed sensory baths could easily be recreated in the wading pool.
