Build, paint, and wash! This is a super fun three-in-one activity that blends motor skills, creativity, and sensory play.
- Plastic building blocks (building bricks, Mega Bloks, or similar)
- Washable paint
- Large shallow bin
- Tear-free soap
Invite your child to build a structure inside a large shallow bin using plastic building blocks. Once their creation is done, bring out the paint! With little guidance, your child will explore painting their structure using washable paint. After building and painting, it’s time to wash up (your child will love this part too!) Fill the shallow bin with some water and tear-free soap. Offer a sponge and enjoy splashing and scrubbing the paint off the blocks.
