As I have mentioned before, sensory play is not only super fun for children, it’s also crucial for brain development, motor skills, language, encourages problem solving and involves practice in mindfulness. Here’s a simple two ingredient recipe for Soap Silly Putty keeping those learning little hands busy.

Mix together

o   2 tablespoons of Cornstarch

o   1.5 tablespoons of Dishsoap

If the putty mixture is too runny, add a little more cornstarch – if adding food colour, a drop will be plenty. Make as many batches and colours as your little one enjoys the exploration.

 If you have any questions, concerns, or curiosities about your little ones – I will be in the doxy room for one on one consultations today between 3-4 pm; just click and wait for me to let you in! If this time isn’t convenient to you – let me know and we can schedule a different time that does work for you. See you soon!

Be sure to check out our blog for more ideas and information!

Enjoy your day!
