Quick Boredom Buster: Oil & Water! - Kids Activities Blog
I have done this many, many, many times at preschool and it never gets old... soooo fun! I usually set it up outside with the water table - after they're done playing with it we add a lot more water and soon we have colorful islands for penguins to jump off of or pirates to find treasure one.

Play with jelly - cold, slimey, squishy, cheap and colourful fun. Bury plastic toys in it before it sets like we did with this Number Jelly or add sweets like these Jelly Snakes to create an all round sensory experience. Have your older kid help you make the jelly and discuss the different properties of the mixture at different stages of the process.

Love, Play, Learn: Fruit Loop Sensory Bin
Sensory boards made out of dollar store cutting boards and common objects from the craft cupboard and around the house. There is sand paper - kitchen scrubbies - car wash mitts - place mats - terrycloth toweling - fun fur etc. The edging is made from colourful shoelaces and each item is glued down with tacky glue - I find it stronger than hot glue - it just had to dry for a couple of days before use. The children really seem to enjoy them!
