Your early learners will be oh, so excited to explore skeleton and eyeball waterplay activities with skulls, eyeballs, and bones. The supplies to collect are low cost: skeleton parts can be found at dollar stores and local party stores, especially in autumn.
Skeleton And Eyeball Soup
plastic eye balls
squishy eye balls
ice cube skulls
extra large wiggly eyes
clear plastic cups
red and blue food coloring
spray shaving foam
tulip shaped punch bowl
A tulip-shaped punch bowl makes a handy container to fit 3-4 children around. But use whatever you have available…a container of any size or shape will have play possibilities.
Use a pitcher to pour water into the punch bowl. Mix in red and blue food coloring to turn the liquid purple. Drop in clear plastic cups, ladles, eyeballs, wiggly eyes, skulls, bones, and skeleton models.
To extend play possibilities, spray shaving foam on top of the water first, and then lay on the loose parts.
After a short while, the shaving foam shrinks, and the water becomes a milky purple.
You don’t need all of the above items for your little learners to enjoy skeleton and eyeball waterplay. Just add eyeballs and a ladle to a large bowl of colored water set in a tub. Spray in a little shaving foam if you have it available. Your early learners will love scooping the “soup” into bowls.
Sprinkle purple glitter on the liquid mixture, and offer eyedroppers, a baster, and pouring containers for more play.
Eyeball Sensory Tube
Load eyeballs into a clear, narrow plastic bottle with a lid. Add neon yellow water. Set the sensory tube on a table for your little ones to view and touch.
