Sand Foam...two ingredients for super, sensory fun

We’ve done Magic Aqua Sand, DIY Coloured Sand , DIY Sand Imprints & plenty more! This Sand Foam has such a smooth, slimy, grainy texture that makes for a great sensory activity that my kids love! We live by the beach and they still want me to get this recipe out again and again! The best part is, it’s very inexpensive AND easy to make! To make your own you will need: Sand – approximately 3 cups Shaving Foam – x 1 can 250g (approximately) To make your lovely Sand Foam, simply pour your sand into a tub (we use the clear storage boxes for Sensory Play) Then pour in your shaving foam – mixing as you go – the kids LOVE this part! Keep mixing and adding the shaving foam until you are happy with the texture. There are so many ways to play with it: 1. 2. 3. 4WD track…drive cars through the sand, it makes cool tracks (and the kids make cool noises) 4.

I love making Origami Paper Boats and little Paper cups.. and I LOVE how surprisingly easy these little paper Origami Lucky Stars are to make.

They look tricky for about 5 seconds.. and then you will be making them over and over and over again! How to Make Origami Lucky Stars – Steps: 1) To make your Origami Lucky Stars, you will need a strip of paper. 2) You now need to “tie a knot” into your Origami Lucky Star. 3) Tuck i the piece of paper. 4) Gently pull tied to secure your Origami Lucky Star 5) Now flip your Origami Lucky Star Over. 6)… and tuck in the little piece that is left over. 7) & 8 ) This step looks confusing.. at first. 9) So fold it across and then tuck it under. 12) Tuck this piece in.
