Soapy Slime

06 April 2017

Early Childhood practitioners love children to get messy! Messy, sensory play provides so many opportunities for learning, development, and growth.

We encourage the children to get messy by putting exciting activities in our messy tray. Soapy Slime is one example, it is a great way to encourage and promote messy play.

To make Soapy Slime we needed soap flakes, warm water, and food colouring. The children helped us to combine the ingredients and took turns to beat it with an electric mixer, which made the mixture grow and grow!

The children practised their gross and fine motor skills as they played with scoops, cups, and funnels and they used their hands to grasp, squeeze and pinch the mixture. It was fantastic to observe them focus and concentrate on what they were doing, and discover new things as they mixed the concoctions together to create colours. Soon the mixture had become ‘cake’ and ‘ice cream’.

The sensory play with soapy slime gave the practitioners an opportunity to support the children’s language and model new language to describe what they were experiencing through their senses: ‘slippery’, ‘slimy’, ‘soft’, ‘squishy’ as well as what it smelled like.

The children had lots of fun, no doubt about it, as they asked when it was all tidy: ‘’When are we playing again?"
