If love isn’t in the air, then you can conjure it! Well, your toddler can through this fun Love Potion Sensory Play.
Toddlers will feel magical and interact with Valentine’s elements.
Mila seriously had so much fun making a love potion. She ended up pretending she was a witch and made our dogs fall in love with each other. Anytime sensory play opens to imaginative play, I get happy!
She also had a blast renaming all her ingredients, which I thought was so creative.
Speaking of ingredients, here’s the ingredients you’ll need to make your little fall in love with this potion:
- A Big Bowl
- Tissue Paper
- White Vinegar
- Baking Soda
- Heart Ice Cubes
- Shaving Cream
- Food Coloring
- Candy Hearts
- Heart Sprinkles
I let Mila do her thing when she put all the ingredients in. The only rule I gave her was to put the big jar (water) in last. That way everything could fizz and look magical.
Although I didn’t give her an order, I think it’s best if you mix the baking powder with the other solid things first. Then, add vinegar.
The longer it can fizz and pop, the better!
She also loved stirring it when she did add the water. I just made sure to keep getting more hearts and tissue paper for her to add in there. It just extends play longer when they can put more things in.
We had so much fun with this simple Love Potion Sensory Play idea. It was easy to set up, but can get messy. I would totally suggest adding kraft paper or a sensory bin underneath to catch rogue water.
No matter what, this potion was a hit and we’ll make sure to keep making potions in the future too!
