You all loved the firework salt painting project so much that we decided to do a Christmas version! Craft projects with my kids are my favorite thing to do in the winter months where we can’t get out as much. This Christmas Tree Salt Painting art project is perfect for kids (or anyone really). The final product looks so pretty! These make the perfect Christmas art project for kids and this technique is such a great way to make DIY holiday decorations!
Play dough is one of the best activities for toddlers and preschoolers and it can be so fun to change things up for the seasons. This Pumpkin Spice Play Dough smells absolutely amazing and kids love playing with it.
Add a bit of fall fun to your preschool activities this year. You can use this for sensory play, or alphabet practice. There’s no better rainy day activity. My kids love pulling out the play dough when I’m working from home and it is so fun seeing what they come up with.
If you are looking for the ultimate sensory play activity, slime is definitely the way to go. Not only is this super fun to make, but it keeps kids of all ages busy for hours playing with it.
You can change things up by adding various mix-ins, depending on what you are in the mood for. Even I have a lot of fun sitting down and playing with my kids with this easy slime recipe.
Slime is so popular for kids of all ages, and for good reason. It’s so fun to play with. I really like this recipe because it is foolproof. We tried a few others and they were hit or miss. It was disappointing to my kids when they didn’t turn out but this one works perfectly every time. I really liked that it didn’t have Borax, because there are mixed opinions on whether it is safe for kids and the powder is more difficult to deal with.
I think most toddlers’ favorite thing to do is make messes, and my apartment can attest to that. Sometimes you just need to let them do their thing in a controlled environment. My daughter Violet loves to watch me paint and gets upset when I don’t allow her to touch my very toxic non-baby safe supplies. Although I would love for her to join me, she is fifteen months old and not quite ready for big girl paint. Edible Finger paint is a great safe way to let her explore her creativity!
