I feel like the internet and all those cool mom influencers, really make things more difficult than it should be.
I constantly see all these super amazing activities and things that requite me to run out to get things, but why? Why are we so easily influenced by these “great mothers” who have everything put together. Sensory play is amazing for development and a fun, yet extremely messy time, that’s great for toddlers.
After church one day I decided to grab all the different tectured things I had around. One plate was filled with rice, another filled buckwheat groats, another with rice, one with corn startch and one with normal flour.
I grabbed a sieve and some cookie cutters and let Arren go to town. Boy, was he having fun. I probably should have taken him out of his Sunday best, but you know, you live and you learn.
Next time you’re looking for a quick way to entertain your toddler, look around at all the fun possiblities already in the house.
