Lay Low with Lalo Vol 5: Sensory Summertime Adventures

Sensory Summertime Adventures

Long summer days call for outdoor activities and hydrating snacks. Schedule an afternoon adventure with your little one, and know you‚Äôre covered from post-play nosh to bath time scrub. Playful pop tunes, included. ūüé∂¬† ¬†¬†

Playlist: Get Bubbly

Level up your bath time routine with these squeaky clean pop hits. They'll make you and your little one want to dance (and splash)!

Recipe: Hydration Pops

All of the sweetness, none of the added sugar. Spice up your summer snacks with popsicles packed with healthy vitamins and minerals.

Hydration Pops 

Serving Size: 4 - 6 popsicles

Time: 2 - 4 hours depending on freeze time for your popsicles 

Here's what you'll need...

Ingredients:

  • Seedless watermelon or watermelon de-seeded¬†

  • Coconut water of choice¬†

Tools/Supplies:

  • Popsicle molds

  • Cutting board

  • Knife for cutting watermelon

Directions: 

  1. Cut your watermelon into very thin slices, removing the rind. 

  2. Add the watermelon slices into your popsicle molds until the molds are half-filled (this typically only takes a few slices).

  3. Fill the popsicle molds the rest of the way up with coconut water.

  4. Freeze & enjoy!  

*Serve once your child is 6 months + and has started solids. Consult with your physician before offering new foods, including popsicles. 

Activity: I Spy: Search and Scoop I Spy

What You’ll Need:

Directions:

  1. Take an adventure to the park or nature reserve with your little one. Bring along their stacking cups. Don’t forget sunscreen and kid-safe bug spray.

  2. While walking around, play ‚ÄúI Spy.‚ÄĚ Ask your little to collect rocks, flowers, sticks, and other objects as you explore together. Show them how to scoop or place their new outdoor collection into their cups.¬†

  3. On your way home, practice saying the names of what they found! Try describing the way they look and feel, pointing out their colors and textures.

  4. For playtime cleanup, jump in the bath with freshly rinsed stacking cups. Turn on the Get Bubbly playlist and encourage your little to scoop up bath water and lift the cup high, watching water stream out in different shapes and formations through the small holes in the bottom of each cup.


  5. Post bathtime, store your stacking cups in our Bath Toy Bin, ensuring they stay clean and dry until the next  adventure!
