Baby to 4 years

This is a wonderful sensory play activity that will keep your little one entertained for hours. There is so much fun to be had creating the soup then playing with and pouring it. No actual drinking allowed though - it's make-believe only!

This is a fab activity for doing on your daily walk or in the back garden. How many of our garden items can you spot? If you can't print our guide, simply view it on your phone and test your memory to see if you can remember what you have seen!
Get creative with all the stones and pebbles you can find! Try creating our ladybirds and caterpillars or simply explore lots of patterns and shapes. Who can build the highest stone tower?
