4. Edible Water Beads

While buying aqua beads might be easier, they are harmful to children who accidentally pop one in their mouths. So, make your own with Boba pearls, and let the kids touch, see, and taste them. Recipe here.


18. Jell-O Paint

Jell-O tastes and smells nice, so I'm sure any tot would love painting with it. During this project, kids will work with their noses and eyes, while learning their food vocabulary. This is great for object and descriptor association.

19. Pom Pom Ice Cream Shop

Create an ice cream store with the little ones--you can use different textured and colored items for unique sundaes, and you can use fake or real coins for the play transactions. Math + Senses = Fun. Ideas here.

20. Sensory Balloons

Fill these babies up with liquid, coffee beans, and other materials that will keep your kiddos' hands occupied. You can also make this a test, in which each person guesses what's inside the balloons! Tutorial here.
