This afternoon my son had fun standing on his step at the sink playing with water and bubbles. He said to me 'mummy I'm having so much fun'. It was such a simple and free activity and his enjoyment made me smile. It got me thinking about what other simple activities we could do.

Time: Quick to set up and they can play for ages
Age: Under 5's
Level: Easy


Messy Box Ideas
Collect some empty plastic boxes.



Plastic box, storage

Hunt around your house and garden for interesting items and textures.
Fill each box.
Try anything from dry pasta to lentils or scarves.



Ice, toddler, sensory


Freeze some water and break up into large blocks. The cold slippery ice is interesting to explore.



Ice, toddler, sensory


Fill a box with play sand and add some toys. These plastic eggs were great for Easter.



Ice, toddler, sensory


Some soil and a few spades or scoops can create quite a bit of mess but it's great fun.



Messy, preschool, sensory


Try squirting shaving foam into a container with some plastic toys. So simple but you'll be surprised how fun this is. Have a look at Foam Dinosaur Hunt



Water, play, preschool


The easiest, cheapest and most fun on a sunny day is water play. Or just have a long bath time with lots of toys.
