Frog Pond Sensory Water-Play

The frog pond water sensory-bin toddler-friendly play tray setup helps improve kids’ hand-eye coordination, communication, and social skills while they explore their environment through creative play.

Water play has many developmental benefits for little ones. Though it might look like your child is just splashing around, water play can help improve children’s balance and strength. Moreover, water play improves hand-eye coordination as the brain sends signals to have the eyes and the hands work in a coordinated manner. 

Sensory Play Improves Communication and Social Skills

Also, by adding actors to your water play tub, children improve communication and social skills and enrich their vocabulary. For example, use adjectives such as next/to/under/on .. a lily pad, etc. Most importantly, children get to play creatively while exploring their environment and learning through play. So, this easy-to-set-up frog pond sensory water-play tray will offer your little one opportunities to exercise many skills!

How to Set Up Easy Water Play Tray

This is the easiest water play tray setup since you need just a large waterproof container and tap water. I am skipping the food coloring, so there is no need to worry about stained hands. However, you can add one drop of blue coloring to tint your water blue.

How to Setup a Sensory Bin Play Tray

What does sensory bin mean?

Setting up sensory invitations to play can be very easy if you know what you need:

Choose Your Sensory Filler

This bin setup is the easiest since, as a filler; I am using tap, untinted water.

Choose Your Actors

Decide on the actors. You can add whatever waterproof figurines your child favors at the moment. For example, you can set up a car wash or dinosaurs rescue from mud, or unicorns in play foam.

Decide on Tools

While smaller children are learning sufficiently through hand exploration, older children might benefit from using tools.

Supervise at All Times

Make sure to set your sensory tub where you can supervise, but offer plenty of opportunities for free play. Remember, children are learning a multitude of various skills through play, so give them room to play creatively.

Water Play Warning

Water is my absolute favorite sensory medium, though be mindful that children can drown in less than two inches of water, so supervise at all times!

Always Supervise Your Child!
