027 - Bath bombs / sensory games / edible paint / play-doh / dinosaurs

Another Wednesday, another day of Dadpluskids sensory play. Today we concentrate on scent for the kiddos, and this one could get really funny if you have a kid with a wicked sense of humour. So let's dive in.

  1. Scented fizzing rainbows is almost like a bath bomb but not. Check out the rainbow science experiments from fun a day for a full list of ingredients and a video instruction video.

  2. Lavender sensory rice is a great little way to calm your kids naturally. The smell is relaxing, the touch is fun, and it's pretty to look at. This is easy to make. You apply the same technique as above with the rice and add a few drops of lavender essential oil or fresh lavender to add the scent.

  3. Scented and edible paint offers kids the chance to explore play through all of their senses. Fantastic fun learning has a great recipe and full instructions for how to make your own.

  4. I used to love the smell of play-doh as a kid, even as an adult. The scent changed, though, as it turns out, that was toxins. You can give your kids a great smelling play-doh experience by making your own. Childhood 101 has a recipe and video over on their page, and you can personalise the scents your kid likes best.

  5. Dinosaur sensory smelly swamp bin. This is a fun activity, and you can scent the bin any way you want. Adventures and play have a full set of instructions on how to make this well.
