Children love playing with balls of all shapes and sizes. And with good reason: balls are great for group play, organised sports or just playing by yourself. They are also suitable for a variety of age groups (from babies to children and even adults).
Children who have already had the opportunity to develop their skills with scissors, glue and brushes will enjoy putting these skills to use in constructing a sailing boat. This activity is fun and purposeful and it develops children’s cognitive and fine motor skills.
Children love stories. You can encourage them to make their own storybooks which will greatly aid their visual and linguistic development.
Making glue at home can be fun and it is also a cheaper alternative to store bought products. It can be very useful for children to know how to make glue on their own.
Playdough is one of the best ways to encourage sensory and creative play.
Create all of the funs things children can, with a silky version of every child's favourite playdough.
Kids love clay, and they especially love cutting and pressing things into clay. Take advantage of this and use their creative talents to decorate your home for Christmas!
Children love experimenting with new art techniques. Tape art allows your pre-schooler to explore paint, colours, shapes and textures, while creating a visual art masterpiece.
