Sensory Car wash


Not a fan of toy cars?

You could adapt this activity to any small toy (made of plastic!) that you don't mind getting wet!

  • Farm animals
  • Dolls
  • Dinosaurs
  • Tea sets
  • Whatever plastic toys you enjoy playing with!


Small world play refers to imaginative play with 'small' toys, encouraging children to use their imaginations and create both everyday and fantasy worlds in familiar surroundings.
