Baby sensory play with ice

19th 06 2017. Posted in Baby Play by elliekelly

 

This is the perfect baby sensory play on days as hot as these!

It’s sooo hot!! I do love the sun and the heat but i would rather be on holiday when it’s this hot, by a pool with a cold drink. Running around after a baby and hosting kid’s parties in 30+ heat isn’t quite as relaxing and results in a bit more sweat.

On Monday, I filled some balloons with water and popped them in the freezer so they were ready to play with later in the week.

Neive was so interested, it was very sweet. Also, quite funny to watch her scoot around the paddling poll trying to pick them up. I’m not sure she has come in contact with anything slippy like ice before.

They didn’t last to long in the heat but she had good fun with them. I have seen some great pictures on pintrest with ice block with sensory items frozen inside which I would like to do next time.

Baby play with balloons

19th 06 2017. Posted in Baby Play by elliekelly

 

So simple and yet so much fun.

With a garage full of balloon and helium Neive has been playing with a balloon for some time. When she was around 54 and a half months old I would tie a loop in the end of the string and put it around her foot. She loved kicking around and watching the balloon bounce.

Now if I have some balloons going spare form a party Neive like to hold the knot and bag them around like a crazy baby. A good game to play together is catch. When Neive goes to throw me the balloon it floats up and I can catch it and give it back to her.

It’s also quite fun when the helium runs out as the balloon with float in mid-air.

Even if you don’t have any helium just banging and hitting the balloon around it great fun for a baby.

Baby box sensory play

  The classic baby in a box game. I must say Neive wasn’t as keen to go inside the box as i thought she would be. We haven’t done lots of play with tunnels yet though so i think she was a bit unsure. I cut some holes in the top of the box and […]
