Today we got to play with a giant sponge. (it was really a bath sponge for babies)
First we put it in our water table and add just water. My daughter added her dog and started playing. I asked her to describe the sponge when it was dry and wet. We did not add a lot of water but if you do remember the sponge will float witch could make for more of a fun time mess.
This is another teaching point. Show how to squeeze, poke, punch, and press on the sponge to create more bubbles. The more you do the more bubbles you will get! My daughter thought this was the best thing ever and worked really hard to make as many as she could.
In the end we took out the sponge and there was plenty of foam bubbles to play with.
Other things you can try on the sponge~
Different shaped containers (as they press on the soapy sponge they make different shapes.)
Spoons (to scoop up the soap)
add more kids (invite you'r kids friends over to play, helps build skills like sharing and patience)
Add toys to be "washed"
Remember to have fun!~
