We love summer here at Bundlee, and what better place to be whisked away to than the beach? This holiday season, let your little one to explore (and taste!) the deep blue sea with this fun summer baby sensory activity - Sandy Beach! Now let's have some wet, messy fun.

Blend cereal until smooth
Cook tapioca pearls in a covered pot until they are floating and tender (It's best to follow the specific instructions on your packet as brands can differ)
Add a few drops of blue food colouring to tapioca
Grab your sensory bin and fill it with the cooled tapioca and the cereal
Gather beach toys and place them in the sensory bin.
Grab your measuring cups, soup ladles or cooking spoons and place them beside the sensory bin.
