Sensory Activities For Preschoolers
This week I experimented with strawberries and playdough for our sensory activities for preschoolers. I will admit, I have NEVER had a successful playdough recipe…even when I TRY to follow the directions on other blogs. Today is a first of hopefully many.
This week was a bit crazy in our house. Firstly, hubby and I went on our FIRST kid free vacation. I will admit that I was in tears when my kids left with their grandparents. I was evidently depressed at church that night as well. Picture a 5’2″ (almost) woman leaning against the wall curled up in a ball. Yup that was me. Although it took some time to cope, I thoroughly enjoyed our vacation. (Does that make me a bad mommy?)
J started her Sand List for week 1 and she loved it! Here are a few pictures of some of the things we did this week.
How to make it:
1) Mix all the dry ingredients together.
2) Then add 1/2 cup of boiled water along with the oil and the strawberry puree.
3) Stir and roll.
J LOVED these sensory activities for preschoolers. She helped pour the ingredients in the bowl, and even helped mixed the ingredients as well. Once the playdough was all ready… purposeful play began.
We did Math. We made balls and counted and we spoke about sizes.
We worked on fine motor skills (cutting the playdough, rolling the playdough, making shapes with the playdough) and just had fun.
According to J, “This is awesome, Mom”. It was definitely an awesome week. How did your week go?
