How to Make A Unicorn Hair Cuts Activity for Kids
Grab your supplies. Cut a piece of cardboard into the shape of a cactus and paint it green with kids paint or colour it green with paint sticks. Set it aside to dry.
Write the lower case letters of the alphabet you want your little one to practice on green dot stickers. Stick them all over the cactus is places your little one can attach a clothespin.
Write the matching letters in upper case on clothespins.
Invite your little one to match the upper case letter to the lower case letter on the cactus using the clothespins.
This activity is good for kids 3 years and up. My kids are 4, 4, and 7 year old.
Exciting Sensory Bins for Curious Kids
Boring afternoons are made exciting with awesome animal-based bins, like Salty Shark Bay or Yarn Farm. Pretend play bins like Birthday Cake Sensory Play or Bubble Tea Party encourage creativity and imagination. And your kids will have so much fun they won’t even know they’re getting smarter with STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) activities like Sink or Float Soup, Magnetic Letter Hunt or Ice Cream Scoop and Count.
