Seasonal Sensory Snow Bottles

Seasonal bottles are great to look at, play with and chat about. Children enjoy relating what they can see in the bottle to what’s been going on in their world. Ours are full of snowy things at the moment but pretty much anything can go in them. Have fun and take your children’s lead, I bet they’ve got loads of ideas of things to pop inside and it will certainly give them lots to chatter about.

Sweet Wrapper Science

Sweet wrapper science, colour exploration

If you’re anything like me then over the festive period you ate more tins of chocolates than you care to own up to, blamed most of the scoffing on the children and the pets and now the tightness of your waistband is giving the game away. Well I don’t feel so bad about it as I evidently had to do it, not because I’m a greedy snuffle-pig but for the children and in the name of science.
