Whilst doing mess free (for a change) sensory activity with a baby I also set up some small zip lock bags with yellow and blue / yellow and red paint. The older child had already noticed that when the baby had mixed up all the colours together the paint went brown. The older child was surprised as we made green especially as we have no green paint!
Sensory Sunday - Touchy Feely Frames using old plastic picture frames. Add some different textures (bubble wrap, faux fur, textured place mats, fabric, ribbon) and let your little one explore! Perfect for babies and toddlers for some sensory play.
Water beads are great for sensory play BUT are a choking hazard for little children. All water bead play is supervised. For the babies I have made a water bead bag and sealed it. Babies (or older children if they want) can swish the beads and make them fall to the bottom. It's a lovely tactile experience without getting messy.
