Baby sensory activities - Jelly Digging


  1 minute read

This Jelly Digging activity is one for those little ones who love mess and who love to eat it, too! Perfect for keeping them busy whilst you get other things done, this is a fun afternoon activity that is just as tasty as it is entertaining. Read on to find out how to make it at home.ย 


What you will need:


  • Muffin/cupcake tray
  • Craft tape
  • Animal figurines, poms poms, buttons or pretty much anything that will fit in the compartments


What to do:


1.Make jelly!

2. Lay some favourite plastic toys in container before
3. Pop in the fridge and allow to set overnight

For younger babies, place container in front of them and let them dig through the icky-sticky jelly!

Learning ideas


For older babies, set up the Jelly bowl with some excavating tools, to make the dig more exciting, then prompt them which toy you wish them to โ€œhuntโ€ for first.
Watch your little one squish and press the jelly through their little fingers for a super true sensory experience.

Note:ย As with all of our activities, we recommend full supervision because, as we know, little ones like to explore with all of their senses - including their mouths!
