When you think Ice Cream Sensory Play you automatically think messy, right? Nope. I scream, you scream, we all scream for this (mess-free) Ice Cream Sensory activity.
Summer comes with its rainy days, but that doesn't mean you can't let your little one experience their first summer with summer related playtime! Read on to find out how to put this cooler day summer baby sensory activity together during those summer downpours.
What you will need:
Sensory balls (different colours, sizes and textures)
A flat piece of cardboard
Three toilet paper rolls
What to do:
1. Draw the cone of the ice cream on the bottom part of the flat cardboard
2. Glue the three toilet paper rolls on top to represent ice cream scoops (you can cut the toilet paper rolls in half to be more shallow and add more rolls for more ice cream scoops)
3. Guide your little one into filling the empty scoops with the balls
What kind of learning opportunities does this activity provide?
- Hand-eye coordination
- Gross motor skills
- Fine motor skills
- Sensory exploration
Note: 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!
If your little one doesn't play as intended, don't worry. The most important thing is that they enjoy!
