Mud Prints: Animals, Feet and Handprints

The boys have been loving their dirt patch. Henry keeps talking about making mud and turning it to dirt and the other way around, not fully understanding it I don’t think. So I thought, what better way to show him what mud is exactly than making it! We turned the dirt patch into a mud […]

Play Dough with Tees, Straws & Pipe Cleaners

  A simple play prompt. Play dough. Tees. Straws. And pipe cleaners added later. The boys and I made play dough and I simply added these items to it. It was a great sensory activity because the play dough was still even warm from making it. Play dough normally is a wonderful sensory activity in […]

Busy Play: Play Dough Construction Site

Henry’s on another play dough kick since his birthday. He got all these little construction machines, and cones and people as a gift and it turned out to be a great addition to play dough that entertained them for hours. Yes, them. George and Henry played side by side for a long time. George was […]

Sand Sensory Art: 100th Day of Preschool

Henry had his first homework assignment for preschool. To create the number 100 out of something. [Not 100 of something, but to make the numbers themselves.] We discussed it together to decide what to make. [Henry told me his teacher made one out of corn!] We decided we wanted to make one with dirt. Well, […]

Sensory Activity: Hauling Corn

With harvest in full swing at Grandpa’s farm, Henry’s always begging to go along and ride in the combine. This weekend, the entire family got out there and rode along! I decided to bring home some corn straight from the field for a sensory activity! [Okay, it may have gone through the corn bins before I got […]

Toddler Activity : Tissue Paper Bag

I let George loose with a paper bag full of tissue paper left over from our DIY Wrapping Paper that Henry and I made. George explored the tissue paper for probably a good half hour. It kept him fully entertained. What came to my surprise, was that I had an empty tub in the room […]

Sensory Play : Frozen Excavation

In order to Beat The Heat last week, we froze some berries and excavated them out! Using tools to find hidden treasures is thrilling for a preschooler! Henry was so excited to dig out his buried treasure. We got started by making the buried treasures together. We had some leftover fruit in the fridge: blueberries, […]

Baby Activity: Fabric Scraps

A new sensory item for George is a tub of fabric scraps! I’ve had these in the cupboard for years, not being able to bring myself to throw them out, but not knowing what else to do with them either. I brought them out one morning for George to explore. I put a selection of […]
