So far it is going very nicely. I am buying extracts from the spice section in the grocery store such as mint, almond, vanilla, etc. I add a little to any ice cubes I make for outdoor play as well as in our play water dispensers (brita) and in the water tables too!
The kids really enjoy it, plus they like to talk about what the water smells like. They say how the mint smells like gum and such!! It really makes the outdoor play even more fun!! It is fun to add it to shaving cream too!

|Water ball toss!! Have the child stand back a little and toss different balls and bumpy sensory balls into colored water, they love it and it is a lot of fun to hear the different splash sounds that each ball makes.|
