Today is Day 12 of our 31 Days of Outdoor Activities for Toddlers. Today we got DIRTY with this Dirt and Worms Sensory Tub. I originally saw this idea for using spaghetti worms over on Learning 4 Kids. I just so happened to have a box of expired spaghetti in my pantry that I needed to use, so I figured this was as good of a use as any!
We did not have any loose dirt accessible without tearing up our yard, so we used potting soil. I just made sure that we washed our hands really well afterwards.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Dirt (we used potting soil)
1. Cook the spaghetti according to package instructions. Prepare the tub by dumping in your dirt.
2. Add the spaghetti and let the fun begin!
At first, Little Sister was a bit hesitant.
…but then she decided she enjoyed the texture (and getting dirty) so she jumped right in! :)
The spaghetti coated with dirt looks like a wig!
I’m just so thankful she didn’t try to put it on her head!
Dirty hands…tell-tale sign of a good time!
