Instead of Screen time try Sensory Play Kits for Kids
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.
Our 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!

How to Make Painted Apple Suncatchers for Kids
Tear off a sheet of waxed paper and lay it down on a covered table.
Pour red some paint on the waxed paper. Small blobs will do. Use a potato masher to create prints on the paper with the paint.
Lay another sheet of waxed paper over top the paint and press down lightly to seal.
Cut out the outline shape of an apple out of red construction paper by folding it in apple cutting out the apple shape and then cutting out the center. See photos.
Use glue to attached the apple outline to the wax paper. Use scissors to cut around the edge of the apple outline to remove the extra waxed paper. Depending on how big you made your apple outline you may have enough painted waxed paper to create more than one apple suncatcher.
Cut out a stem and leaf from brown and green construction paper. Glue them to the top of your apple. Attach the suncatcher to your window using tape or double side tape.
Repeat with green and yellow paint and construction paper to make green and golden apples!
This activity is good for kids 3 years and up. My kids are 3, 3, and 6 year old.
