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.
Help children learn 'under' and 'over' by singing and reading "Going on a Bear Hunt" - then turn into Messy Play Style by including a sensory play session. The book is full of descriptive language! Good for my VI kids.
An A-Z of Play Dough recipes: a whole alphabet of different flavours. Pin it for a superb reference! We use play dough to teach math, letters, fine motor skills, develop language and imagination. Great to have lots of flavors to keep things interesting for the kids.
