These games are so much fun for your toddlers, you may want to make one for yourself!
The basic idea for sensory bottles is pretty simple. Fill an empty water bottle with some cool things to look at: glitter, googly eyes, pom poms, twisted pipe cleaner pieces, plastic jewels, cool erasers, beads, etc.
Fill the bottle the rest of the way with a liquid substance (plain water, food colored water, baby oil, hair gel, clear glue, glitter glue, etc.). Now secure the lid (use hot glue gun or super glue). Give the bottle or bottles to your child and watch them enjoy the fun objects inside of the bottle.
Faces File Folder Game
This activity is an awesome file folder game created by the Church. Your toddler will get to color the pieces for this file folder game after you print them. This is probably the most awesome file folder game I have ever seen. And it’s free!
Even my husband and I have a fun time playing with this game. (Only when our kids aren’t looking, though!) We have to keep up mature appearances with our kids obviously. 😉
You can laminate the pieces for extra durability and/or add magnets to the back of the face pieces and do it on a cookie sheet so that the pieces stay in one place once they are set. No matter how you make it, it’s sure you to keep your child busy for at least one General Conference talk.
