Baking sheet/roasting pan/or large Tupperware container
Cookie cutter shapes/forks/child sized rakes
Age: 2 years or after your child is old enough to not put everything in his/her mouth!
Objective: Textured play
Instructions: Cover your floor with newspaper or have your child move to an area you don’t mind cleaning if it gets really messy! Dump a large portion of flour onto baking tray or container, shake a bit to semi-evenly disperse. Give your child cars/trucks/tools to use to create tracks and piles and shapes in the flour.
V played happily with this tray for what seemed like hours (but was probably half of that!). Still, a very long time for a toddler. When your little one can’t play in the sand, this is a fun alternative and no harm if they eat a little too! Doesn’t stain clothes, either, though it does make a big mess, so be prepared…
