Pretend play that the animals are getting messy in mud! Then wash, dry, and repeat!
- Tray or rimmed baking sheet
- Animal figurines (farm animals work great!)
- Washable paint (brown)
- Shallow container or small mixing bowl
- Tear-free soap
Fill a shallow bin or mixing bowl with water and tear-free soap (use a whisk or turn the water on high to create soapy bubbles). In a tray, combine equal parts flour and water. Add some brown washable paint to turn the mixture into a muddy color! Place some animal figurines near the muddy tray and arrange a washcloth and sponge near the bubbly water. Have fun getting the animals muddy, then wash, dry, and repeat!
