Let’s share ~ Sensory/Craft Ideas

Last summer I included a lot of Sensory/Messy Play and Craft ideas, via sharing photos of what we have done on my blog and Facebook Blog page. This was after planning a ‘Sensory Diet’ for Lou as she is a huge ‘Sensory Seeker,’ and she thrives on these type of activities.

I have recently had to reduce my work load due to ongoing back problems, whilst I await treatment, which I have been upset about as working in Early Years settings is all I’ve ever known. What I realised recently is that I can use my knowledge of early years activities to share ideas, especially as sensory play and craft are huge areas of my interests, and I do a lot of these types of activities at home with both Lou and Moo.

I also hope to share a range of new reward charts that I’m currently putting together, I’m having to change Lou’s ‘Frozen’ chart to her new interest of ‘Trolls.’

We cannot wait to get started on more sensory/messy activities as the weather starts to improve, we spent so many hours in the garden last spring and summer, and I have ordered Lou a ‘Tuff Spot,’ or ‘Builder’s tray’ to explore many of her favourite and new materials.

And of course it had to be pink!

What I hope to do now is to create a ‘Linky’ where other bloggers can link up their photos of Sensory/Messy play and/or Craft ideas, along with a description and any list of resources/ingredients/equipment used.

I have learnt that to share ideas is a fab thing. I’d also love to hear posts about any classes or groups that you have attended with your children, such as messy play groups, etc.

If you are not a blogger, I’d still love to hear from you as you can always send me an email at:


The follow image is going to be the Linky icon for when the posts are linked up:

Whilst I get to grips with how this works, as it’s all new to me! I’ll be sharing some activity ideas via my Facebook page:
