Our invitation to play was small and simple, yet bright and very inviting, the mini monsters could not wait to get their hands in!
To set up your own mermaid messy play/sensory bin you need:
Blue hair gel (the cheap 1980's kind works best!)
Small container, we used a large lunchbox. It was just big enough for 2 sets of little hands to reach in!
There isn't anything fancy about this, as you know I love the simple and quick to make/set up activities the best, use an old spoon to get all of the gel out of the pot and into your container, tap the container on the table a few times to level out the gel and then sprinkle lots of glitter and give it a stir to mix it all up!
Add the mermaids and sea animals and you're ready to play!
