Once it is dry, grab some gems (or Pom Poms or buttons or dot stickers or small circles cut from construction paper) and glue them all around the paper cup.

Grab your sparkly gold foam paper and trace the shape of a star. Use a pair of scissors to cut it out. Glue it to the top of the paper cup.

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!
