Engage in some flour play
Playing with flour is a great sensorial activity, and inexpensive as well! At first, these guys played with it using their hands, fingers and faces (blowing it all over). Later in the day they came back to it, dumped the trays and danced in it (missed pics of that!)
Soap bubble play
Hmmmm, what do you think happens when we add soap and water to a blender?? And then spread it all over ourselves and each other? Let’s find out….
Needless to say, they were all super clean afterwards.
Everything is better with food coloring.
Take a break in a hammock
The swinging is obviously a great way for parents and caregivers to relax but it’s also fantastic for stimulating the vestibular system of the baby. Two birds, one stone….aaaaaaahhhhh.
