Yesterday and today Elenore and I have been having a blast playing with our new crafts. Yesterday we made a “jellyfish in a bottle” and I made Rainbow Rice and started her water beads.
She loved her jellyfish! She walked around with it all last night, shaking it and just looking at it in in awe.
Then as she was playing with her jellyfish I made sure her rice was drying and added more water beads to the water. (These were going to be her “sensory box”)
Today I made sure her Finger “painting” was up on the windows when she got up and man, she LOVED it! She stood in front of them for hours saying “wow…” and playing with the paint. It was definitely worth the shopping yesterday for the supplies! All it is, is paint in a ziplock bag and then taped to either a table or window. I did the window so that the sun could shine through her creations.
And then finally I made her sensory box. Between the two crafts she played all morning long! She loved it! Her box was full of water beads, rice, beans and a few spoons for her to play with. She sat in there and played for hours. Well worth it!
