Sugar Aunts: Use a Marble Run on the Water Table Sensory Play

Use a Marble Run on the Water Table Sensory Play


Recently, we posted an image on our instagram page of an outdoor sensory play activity.  We pulled out our marble run toy and the water table for sensory and fine motor fun.  This was such a hit on a hot day that we have played with the marble run and the water table many more times since.  We wanted to share the fun with you!

water table with water and some expanded water beads.  If you've never played with water beads before, these are a sensory must!  The small beads are perfect for sensory play and go right down the shoots of the water table.  We poured, scooped, and dumped water and water beads down the shoots and ramps and watched the beads pile up at the bottom of the marble run.

This sensory play activity was not only perfect summer fun on a hot day, it was a great fine motor and eye-hand coordination activity for preschoolers.
