- This is an easy to set up good-for-the-kid sensory activity. And finally a use for that old baby tub in my garage. Just a few squirts of baby soap for bubbles, a dish rag, and some dishes from the play kitchen and we were ready to go. This is a good exploratory activity. And may keep him or her entertained for a bit. Especially good for a hot day. Could also wash cars or babies or whatever. As you can see, this was a hit with the Ladybug and LuLu dog.
