Are you looking for an activity to get your kids through the late afternoon slump? Setting up a Sensory Play Activity after homework time, is always a winner over here.
Over the coming weeks, I will be setting up lots of Autumn Sensory Play Activities for my kids to do after school. Following a busy day of learning, then homework, my kids start to tire and frustrations and tempers can start to rise before dinner and bed. I find that a Sensory Play Activity at this time, is a great way to soothe any rising tensions and promotes a bit of quiet time (well not always that quiet!) to wind down and reflect on the day before eating dinner. Our favourite so far has been our Invitation to make…Hedgehogs with Play Dough.
