Tapioca as a Sensory Experience

Our first outdoor sensory bin was made from tapioca and water.
Tapioca is a starch that is used to make puddings.
When mixed with water it makes a fine, smooth, gel like material.
So I thought it would be a great product to use for a little one who is still interested in tasting what she is playing with.
She was tentative at first, not knowing what it was.
 But began to explore and enjoy the wet slippery feel.
Frog hopped out and started hopping away.
We went over to the grass and found some natural materials, like clover and sticks, to entice frog back into the bin.
