Fairy Soup: fine motor and sensory play in the garden
You may remember that I recently mentioned that on Thursdays in my home daycare this year, I have only girls here. Last week we had quite the girly day, and we made Fairy Mud, you can click here to see how wonderful it was! This week, keeping with the theme, we headed out to garden and spent the morning making Fairy Soup, which was a fabulous fine motor and sensory activity, and a great way to keep cool on a warm, humid morning.

Making our Fairy Soup!
They went for the glitter first. I kind of thought they would.
If you know me at all, you know that the hooligans are a little glitter deprived. I’m a total glitterphobe, but after the success that we had using it in our fairy mud last week, I was happy to bring it out again today. I’m really making progress, aren’t I? Mind you, it helps that we’re outside. I’m pretty certain you’ll never see us generously dusting our crafts with the stuff. It’s just not gonna happen!
Our rose bushes are in full bloom right now, so the blossoms are plentiful, and they were really fun to pull apart and decorate the soup with.
We ended up colouring a couple more batches of water before the morning was over, and when it was all said and done, we removed all of the shells and stones from the bowls, and we poured it all into the garden.
Easy, inexpensive, engaging and fun! It was the perfect activity for a warm summer’s day
