Sensory Bag Ideas for travelling with kids
Hi everyone, Im really sorry we have been away for a little while. We have been travelling, exploring and having lots of fun!
Its great that here in the UK with the clocks going forward it has meant we are having lots more daylight and i dont know about you but having more light in the evenings has started to give me an energy boost, so with lots of ideas going around in my head, im really hoping ill be able to manage some of them and blog about them as well!
One idea that i wished i had got around to doing in advance was making travel sensory bags, i did some other posts about sensory bags here but having some dedicated travel themed sensory bags could have come in really handy for when my little one got ‘bored’ while we were travelling!
Here are a run down on some portable sensory bags that you may enjoy as well. They would also be good to have in your bag ready for at a restaurant while waiting for your food.
Great idea for frogs and fishes
Perfect for in the car!
We have been at the beach recently and i really like the idea of incoporating any sea shells your little ones have picked up, i got my first ones this weekend and will be happily kept till forever! 🙂
I know alot of you like using water beads so here is another idea for using them by placing them in a sensory bag, i like the idea of using them against the window using the spring sunshine.
This is a great website if you have time to check out some of the ideas. I really like this sensory bag as its a bit different to the others as some of the animals and the card are static in the bag while the other animals can be moved around in the oil.
This has definitely given me some great ideas for more sensory bags, i like the beach themed bag as i can use some of the sea shells my little one collected while we were on holiday so a bit like a memory sensory bag! This could turn into an addiction! 🙂
Rainbow Kids Crafts
Its St Patricks Day on March the 17th and what screams more of St Patricks day than rainbows?
Here are a selection of rainbow inspired kids food and craft activities that look so fun they need to be shared!
These are so simple but look so fun, who wouldnt want these in their lunchbox?
Ok little ones might need a hand with this one, but i couldnt leave this out, how amazing does this look? Takes the standard layer cake to another level!
Yep thats right jelly rainbow eggs! Probably laid by a rainbow hen as well! 🙂
Great for musical little ones.
I really like the look of this, i can imagine my little one really enjoying the different colours.
How big are these?! They make me want to get in the box and have a go!
I love food stamping and finding out shapes you never knew were there!
This is a great kit to have ready for colourful play.
Keep an eye out for more St Patrick day ideas coming up.

So my thoughts are turning to Spring and Easter. What is not to love about the colours of Spring, the hope of the plants breaking through. Daffodils for Spring and chicks and chocolate for Easter do i need to say anymore? 🙂 Here are some ideas for Easter Crafts.

If you missed them the first time around, these Handprint Lambs are an easy Easter craft for preschoolers! They’re so easy and they were really fun to make!
Paper plate crafts are so fun, and this Paper Plate Baby Chick Purse is no exception!
Sponge painting crafts are a new adventure for little hands. Try these Sponge Painted Spring Chicks.
Handprint crafts document a little one’s size and make a cute keepsake! Here are directions for a Handprint Easter Chick Greeting Card.
Why not repurpose something that’s going to end up in the trash or recycling bin? Make these Toilet Paper Roll Easter Bunnies.
These Laced Easter Bunny Pouches would be perfect for name cards at an Easter dinner.
I’d love to share little treats and candies with my family in Easter Bunny Envelopes.
My own kids love making masks, and I love the eyes and feathers on these Easter Chickie Masks.
