Having had a fabulous time at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, I decided to set up a small world version so that J could replicate the fun he had while on the Kilimanjaro Safari. Our Animal Kingdom safari small world provides hours of imaginative play fun for toddlers to school aged children.
I love slime! It has such a wonderful consistency and it so simple and quick to make. It is a fabulous sensory tool and great for occupying kids on a rainy or cold day. Because it is so simple to make, most of the ingredients will already be in your cupboards and your children can make it with you. The best feature of slime is that it makes no mess so can be played with anywhere. Since it is almost Halloween, I decided to make some Pumpkin Slime this week.

J is loving learning his letters and in recent weeks he is increasingly asking us to make dotted letters and numbers for him to write so I thought he was ready for some salt writing. There are different substances from around the house you could use to help your child learn to write – sand, flour, cocoa powder, sugar, but this time I decided to try some salt. I decided that I would theme the writing tray to attract J’s interest so that he wanted to participate in the activity and that is how the Halloween salt writing came about.
In preparation for learning to write, I have been creating lots of fun fine motor skills activities for J to play. In keeping with the autumn/Halloween season I made a spider web fine motor challenge for him. It was a really simple activity to set up and I only used items that I had lying around the house already. J was really excited when he saw the spider web in the cupboard and couldn’t wait to get started.
