Directions: Add bubble soap to empty kids pool. Fill with water. Add various bubble toys like empty bottles, straws, hoops, string, etc. Creates a BUBBLE wonderland,
right in the back yard.

Frozen Toys added 6-15-04 Original Author Unknown

In an ice cube tray freeze some small toys ( for smaller children use small plastic  containers to freeze larger toys in so that the toys are not small enough to choke on.) Put your frozen toys in the sensory table filled with warm water, they children will love to feel the difference between warm and cold and try to discover why they cannot pick up the frozen toys. You can even freeze some plain ice cubes with food coloring in it. The color will trail off of the melting ice cube.
