  • Sensory Finger Painting in Bags

    I just LOVE this idea. It’s got all the best elements: touch, sight, and it’s CLEAN! HAHA! Paint in big plastic bags and taped to the window lets little ones create fun designs without any mess.

  • Contact Paper Art

    Contact paper taped down to a flat surface is a great option. Give your little ones small, soft materials to stick or go outside for a minute and collect some pieces of nature to use!

  • Pom Pom Shoot

    Use gravity and some simple household items to create this fun game. Toddlers can drop little poms through the tube and watch them fall into the bowl or bucket.

  • Color Matching Games

    This game may take some introducing before they can play it on their own but use little brightly colored poms and let your child “sort” them by color!

  • Fabric Scrap Box Game

    Upcycle an old wipe box for a fun game of pulling fabric scraps in and out. Pick different colors and patterns of fabric or even just use old tshirts!

  • Pipe Cleaner Structures

    Have your little ones work on their fine motor skills and create art sculptures with pipe cleaners and an upside colander. It’s so brilliant because it’s so simple!

  • Sorting Cotton Balls

    A quiet game, have them sort cotton balls. If they start to get bored show them how to rip the cotton apart for some (messy) fun. ;)

  • Sensory Balloon Bugs

    So fun! Fill balloons with different materials like sand or beans and draw little buggy details on them. Let your little ones squeeze and feel the different textures while also playing with the “bugs”
