Sensory play and small world set-ups are super easy to create and are so much fun for toddlers and preschoolers to play and learn with! This Spring themed activity doubles as a fun craft – as you make the flowers from paper, and a hands on sensory play activity. You could also talk about some fun math concepts such as counting and volume too! You won’t need many items to create this set up, but children will have fun with it for hours!
This is what you will need:
Colored construction paper
White school glue
Small pom poms
Shallow dish or container
Dried black beans
Small pots or containers
Spoon or scoop
This is what you will need to do:
1. Start by making your flowers. To do this, take your construction paper and cut 4 heart shapes. Each heart shape should be the same size. Glue the hearts onto a craft stick as pictured and finish with a pom pom in the flowers center.
2. Next, place your pots or small plastic containers into a shallow dish and then pour the dried beans around the pots.
3. Take a spoon or scoop and transfer the beans into the pots.
4. Plant your flowers into the pots.
This is such a fun activity, I really hope that you enjoy playing. Jacinta Xx
