At Easter, T was sent some little chicks and some table decorations by her Grandparents. One look at them and I thought they’d be perfect for a quick and easy spring sensory bin! In addition to the chicks and decorations, I added: – some dried lentils, – a nest that I found in ASDA’s Easter […]
We love play dough in our house! There are so many ways of playing with it and it is really great for sensory play, developing fine motor skills, and promoting creativity. T really enjoys playing with play dough so we often pull some out and keep it simple with our box of play dough tools […]
