Christmas sensory play

If you have children you are bound to have a craft cupboard full of shiny paper paints etc.

This morning after our #elfontheshelf had fun with our button stash we decided to play too.

Your craft cupboard need not be expensive shop bought crafting materials most of ours are salvaged ribbons, birthday present bags and decorative wine carriers. Squirrelling them away saves a fortune.

I wanted to create a wintery sensory experience. We have a variety if materials and mediums to use.

*christmas buttons in red, green and white
*christmas tree and star shaped buttons
*holographic card
*glitter white card
* silver ribbon
* silver thread
*feather boa pieces
*silver metallic shred
*a few snowflake adornments removed from a wine bag
* and some white paper to place items on

I decided against gluing as we can package the materials up and play again rather than fixing them down. The materials available providing a tactile play experience during the run up to Christmas.

I will leave this activity open to my 2 and 3 year old all morning.
