Summer Sensory Play from Share It Saturday

With August just begun and talk of back-to-school shopping, we started thinking how fast this summer is flying by!   I know we say this a lot on Share It Saturday, but this week was especially hard to choose features.  We want to get busy and try them all!  With the end of summer approaching, we thought this little round-up of summer sensory play activities could make August extra special. 

So check out these fun Summer Sensory Play ideas and get a little messy.  Do it now while you can hose off in the yard and before the leaves start falling :)

Our Features:


There's Magic Out There shares a messy chalk activity.  We've played with wet chalk a few times, and this one is fun!
There's Just One Mommy combined water beads and shaving cream. Sensory-tastic!
B-Inspired Mama got busy with kids in the kitchen and made a "mud" pie!  Messy kitchen=yummy fun :)
