- Glue your robot head to the top of one the fifth craft stick.
- Take your painted cardboard box and use a craft knife to make a slit on each side of the box for the arms. Make two slits on the bottom for the legs and one slit on top in the middle for the head.

Make quiet time their favourite time!
Play is at the core of learning during the early years and it can take many forms. One of the most important of these is sensory play because it engages all of a child’s senses (taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing) and has a enoumous positive impact on brain development.
My Sensory Play Kits are a fun and easy way to keep your child engaged while at the same time capitalizing on the benefits of sensory play to nurture their mind!
