The Toddlers have been creating their own sensory bags.
Using lots of different materials such as conditioner, rice, flour, paint, glitter and spaghetti hoops, the children helped to fill the bags and we talked about safety when opening the hoops tin. The children really enjoyed mushing all the ingredients together inside the bags and oops… the spaghetti hoops exploded on the floor! We talked lots about the different colours and textures we could feel and see, our favourite was the smell of the conditioner.
