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.
Paper Plate Tiger Craft
Grab your paper plate and use the black washi tape to create tiger stripes on each 1/3 section of the plate. These will become the stripes on the forehead and either cheek of your paper plate tiger.
Now use orange water colour paint to paint the rest of the tiger paper plate.
Once dry, add google eyes. Cut out ears from orange construction paper and glue them to the back of the paper plate. Out of the black construction paper cut out a nose, mouth and the line connecting the two. Glue these to the front of your tiger.

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!
