When I saw this recipe in my FB newsfeed, I knew right away that I needed to save it for future use.
Yoghurt playdough is made with just 2 ingredients (that you probably already have) and turns out so soft and fun to play with. What’s Yoghurt Dough? A super easy to make sensory dough that your toddlers and kiddos will love to play with.Being a mother of three, I’ve come across lots of sensory activities that I’m finally getting around to making with them.It’s so important to give them new sensory experiences, to help stimulate their brains, creativity and it’s just plain fun! The texture of our DIY yoghurt playdough is slimy but smells so delightful , which is why they enjoyed playing, squishing, poking, twisting, rolling the playdough. This is also great for fine motor development, perfect for a quiet time activity, plus it’s such an open ended invitation.
There are endless ways and items to add to it for creative play that’s why we are so excited to try it!
We added food coloring and used Lego for stamping. We also used plastic knife for cutting and cooking pan for pretend play. Isabelle didn’t quite understand how to actually mold things with it yet but she had a ton of fun squeezing her hands through it and smashing it. It kept her busy too!
On the other hand, the boys write their names and created some artworks.
Now when it comes to clean up…hmmm.. I’d say that if you are not fun of messy play then this post is not for you.
It’s a delicious, sweet smell and finger licking kinda mess! Don’t worry though this is super messy to clean, your house and hands will smell like peach and mixed berries.
So grab some Yoghurt and have some fun!
The other night while browsing at Pinterest and looking for a robot craft, I saw a great activity that involves sticky plastic cover we used to cover Kuya Angelo’s books.
We still have spare since daddy A bought 1 roll. Then the idea pops out to combine pre-cut shapes and contact paper to make a robot. And thus the Robot Making Shapes born.
I was pretty sure chinito Inigo would be into it. He’s into robot because of the Toy Story movie and he’s fascinated with Buzz Lightyear.
First, I cut a large square of clear contact and tape it to our easel with the sticky side out.
Then, I put tape in each corner and halfway so it wouldn’t move or bunch up when we pulled things off.
Next, I laid the pre-cut shapes and asked him that he can make a robot out of shapes.He was too excited to start.
Finally, he made two robots. One for him and the other one for Kuya A. I also made rocketship to go along with the robots.
I know you know that I love free printables! But sometimes, an impromptu activity comes to mind that I don’t want to take the time to look in the pinterest and print it.
Inigo loves numbers but needs lots of practice in recognition and improving fine motor skills creating this DIY clip card using markers, cardboard and clothespins we had was a great alternative!
While doing this activity he is not only learning the math skills but also building up the strength in his fine motor skills which is essential for writing soon.
How have you been? Are you kids going back to school already? Kuya Angelo’s first day was quite tough. At first he was too excited but upon entering to his old school he became fussy and cranky. Infact,he was too hesitant to enter his classroom. Can’t blame him though, this is something new again for him although he’s been in his school from FS2 to Grade 1.
But after explaining and comforting him he eventually agreed to go inside. I hope in a week or two he’ll be more confident to his new teacher and classmates.
Anyhow, since we are in back to school mode. I’d like to share some of new things we did for the past week. Aside from giving him a short prayer and sending him with words of blessings every day. This school year, I started to make his lunch something special.
Oh no! I’m not speaking of bento lunch or baon serye. I just simply added a lunch note in his lunch box and water bottle.
The first time he came back from school he was too excited to tell me that he was so surprised and he couldn’t throw the bottle.
Then I realized that since we are away from them for few hours lunch is the perfect time to remind them of our love! These lunch box notes are super easy and convenient. Simply print them and send them as is, and your child will feel loved all throughout his or her school day.
I also started to write encouraging words on our easel so when they woke up they can see/read a love notes from mommy!
These little touches are sure to make them SMILE😄
