Rice Krispies Sensory Bin

I have been thinking about what activities I could do with Sophie this weekend linked to Bonfire night. We went to see some fireworks this evening and I was a bit apprehensive about taking Sophie as she has recently developed a fear of balloons because she thinks they will pop. We took some ear defenders for her to wear and she absolutely loved it! She could still hear the bangs but they were muffled and didn’t seem to scare her.  So I think I am going to use some materials such as bubble wrap and rice krispies to explore sound. I have used rice krispies as a sensory activity with Sophie when she was about 8 months old so I decided to do a quick blog post about it.

Chocolate Witches Hats

Sophie is loving ‘Room on the Broom’ so much and says “frog shower” and “witch says yes” on repeat all day (except for when she’s singing ‘Everybody Wants to be a Cat’!) So I have been trying to think of activities linked to the story to avoid having to read it on a loop all day! So far, I have put together a story basket and printed colouring sheets for her. I decided to make some chocolate witches hats with her for our next activity. She enjoyed looking for the ingredients in the supermarket.
