I have recently embraced the joys of sensory play. I know that it is extremely beneficial for children and my kids LOVE it!
This week we enjoyed spaghetti sensory play. I got the idea from PlayAtHomeMom, there are so many sensory ideas on that site, you should totally check it out.
I bought some spaghetti, BOGO of course, cooked it and let it cool. Then I put a little oil and food coloring into a large baggie and added some spaghetti. Mix it all up and you have some fun colored spaghetti!
I gathered some kitchen utensils that I thought the kids would enjoy using with their spaghetti.
At this point Alex and Ava were very curious as to what I was up to. I took the bags of colored spaghetti and bin of kitchen stuff out to the driveway. The kids followed and the fun began!
After all of the fun I turned on the sprinklers and let them ‘clean’ themselves and the dishes.
We all had a blast playing with our spaghetti. The kids are already asking to do this again, I highly recommend this activity!!
