Toddler & Preschool section
Use all that Christmas online shopping boxes to create some easy home crafts with your Little Feet.
Super easy gel sensory bags for your Little Hands to explore.
Make some DIY Autumnal Placemats with your Little Feet. A great activity that keeps giving. It involves foraging, leaf pressing and then sticking and contact paper. Once they are made, use them again and again throughout Autumn.
String Painting is a simple art activity to do with your Toddler. Most Little Hands love painting with anything other then a paintbrush so this is perfect for experimenting. It’s also great practise for their pincher grasp.
Create a super easy sensory art activity for your preschoolers. All you need is some sandpaper, crayons and a heat tool to see the magic happen.
Create beautiful Nature Necklaces with petals and leaves that are turning for Autumn.
Chalk painting is an inexpensive art activity you can do with your Little Feet outdoors. All you need is some pavement or road, some chalk, water and paintbrushes and bobs your uncle you are sorted.
Cling film painting is an easy sensory play experience for your toddler. It also limits the mess with an easy lift, scrunch and throw away attitude. In equal measures it makes for a great piece of artwork if you use some paper and press it into their painting at the end of the activity.
Everyone has recyclables in their house. It just comes with living in our world, whether for better or worse. Most countries require you to recycle most of your rubbish too. This activity is just a different way of utilising them for a new painting experience. All you need is rubbish, a glue gun and paint!
Shoe painting! It’s messy, it’s outdoors, its colourful. Your Little Feet will love it. Take a deep breath, find your chi and get stuck in. All you need are some plastic shoes like wellies, beach sandals, jelly shoes or crocs, paper and paint!
Car painting is a great outdoor sensory activity that any Little Feet will love to get stuck in with. If they like vehicles with wheels, then they will love the splatter of colour that appears!
Colander Nature Crown, is a fun way to talk about your local ecosystem through the picking of nature in and around where you live. Create your own Colander Nature crown with flowers, feathers, twigs and more!
Fabric painting. It’s what it says on the tin! Literally painting fabric. Think touch and texture. Think colour and movement. It is a different sensation then painting on paper. Watch your Little Feet run their fingers over the different fabrics, and rub them on their faces. Watch as they paint them and see how each paint stroke looks different on each piece of fabric.
Melting down broken crayons is not a new phenomena, it's been around for a while. The easy and less mess option before we begin, is to use silicone bakeware moulds. We however will be creating some mock lolly crayons. A little more effort then using silicone bakeware moulds but worth the effort I reckon.
Think Impressionism, but fleetingly and more laterally and radically. Think past Impressionism to the new. Think of pure colours, no mixing. And lastly, think of dots. Lots and lots of tiny dots.
Water beads are an excellent tool for sensory play. Everyone from Little Feet to Big Feet will want to get involved and will be swept away by how addictive and therapeutic playing with them is!
