I often share on instagram what I do in terms of sensory activities with Manuel. I think some of these activities should not be forgotten in the feed and therefore I am planning to start giving them a forever home here on the blog.

Some activities are a success and others a total fail. Somehow when I do them they almost never turn out like I plan. Sometimes better sometimes worse. But one thing is true, I am on a mission to find a fun activity for 13 months old

This one was a hit! Maybe because I love to paint or because the end product was really cute.

Toddlers and pre-toddlers (12 – 18months) love organized activities that explore their senses and creativity.

Painting is a really fun way to do this. Is an easy set up and because these are water based paints they are easy to clean up.

You may be interested in creating your own paints at home or even an edible alternative.
