Last week we were asked if we would like to review something from House of Fraser’s fab range of outdoor toys. We love sharing sensory play ideas for kids and activities for toddlers so I knew instantly that I wanted to try them out with a water table. They had a great time when it was first opened playing with the boats in the moat and generally getting wet and having a good time! The next day I decided that I wanted to try something a little different out so, with some help from my son I set up this simple Spring flower sensory soup for them to play with.
Spring and Easter
Are your kids obsessed with Surprise Eggs? My son is. Given half a chance he would spend all day watching surprise egg videos on YouTube and would make them the main part of his diet. Thankfully his mother won’t quite allow that yet! With Easter just around the corner I thought it would be fun to make something with them, these Surprise Egg Chicks would be great for hiding clues to an Easter Egg Hunt in or perhaps hiding a few mini-eggs or jelly beans?
Yesterday I shared a cute round up of Easter Egg Crafts for Preschoolers for this weeks Tuesday Tutorials and today we’re joining in with these sweet Easter tree decorations that the kids decorated! These were so simple to do and my kids both had loads of fun doing them, and of course we now have some cute Easter tree ornaments to put up too!
With the Easter holidays approaching we’ve been getting excited about Easter and have started doing our Easter crafts for this year. Looking through last weeks linky it looks like we aren’t the only ones so this week I’m sharing some fun Easter Egg Crafts for Preschoolers that were linked up last week!
Up until now I’ve avoided making a sensory bin for my children at all. I love looking at ideas for activities for toddlers and sensory play but sometimes I can feel a bit overwhelmed by it and like I have to produce something amazing otherwise my kids won’t like it. Sometimes though the simple ideas can be the best. During a playdate the other week my four year old son and his friend were busy being four year olds and as such, my one year old daughter and her two year old friend needed occupying. I put together this simple Easter sensory bin for toddlers in about two minutes and they loved it!
