Simple Bottle Cap Soup Sensory Play


I have been meaning to use up my stash of bottle caps somehow, and today I am sharing one way to play with them!  

Do you have a stash, too?  

Please tell me I am not the only one that saves "loose ends" and empty cans?!  

Today, as part of our Fine Motor Friday series we are serving up some Bottle Cap Soup!

Simple Sensory Play for Kids

I gathered a large mixing bowl, spoons, bowls of our bottle cap "ingredients," and water.  For a little added learning (but not necessary), I wrote the ABC's, numbers, shapes, and Little Sis's name on the bottle caps using fabric paint.

I loved that the puffy paint on the caps added a sensory element to our play, however, Little Sis was not interested in that element!

Big Brother did a little color sorting with the bottle caps for a few minutes, but otherwise the kids just enjoyed playing!

Come one, come all... now serving Bottle Cap Soup!  

Lot's of pouring, scooping, pinching, dumping going on during our bottle cap soup making adventure.

This easy to put together activity took place as I was making dinner.

We were both cooking up some yummy goodness ; )  

A bit of water ended outside the bowl, but it was a great way to clean the table and floors really quick!  

Head on over to the other Fine Motor Friday's co-host and see what they are sharing today!
