Clean Mess with the boys

Try out this fun ‘Clean Mess Recipe’ for sensory play. This tactile play will help build some of the foundational skills for your child’s fine motor development.


  • Toilet paper (1 roll)
  • Dish soap
  • Water
  • Large plastic container

What to do:

  1. Place water and dish soap (just enough to make some bubbles) into your container
  2. Give your child a toilet paper roll. Let them tear pieces and place it into the water
  3. Keep going until they create a soft and slimy texture
  4. Explore with hands and feet
  5. For extra variety you can add food coloring to make it more colorful

For ideas on how to play with this concoction check out the Weekend Sensory Play Time post.
