Sensory:    Have your child help you wash the picnic dishes!  Teach them to dip the washcloth in the soapy water and wash off the dish.  Turn on the warm water for your child and let them rinse off the dish. They can even help dry the dishes.  Please be sure to use dishes that are non-breakable and stay with your child during this entire activity since it involves water and possibly being on a chair or stool to reach the sink.
