We had a quiet morning filled with exploration. Dylan and Sanjay helped scoop out our rice and pasta from the sensory bin and then we were able to fill it all up with water and bubbles! Since it looked like a bubble bath, we added some of our toys to give them a good scrub. Water play was such a hit, I'm sure we'll be repeating this activity for days to come!
