Rubber Egg

Make a hard egg bounce by adding it to a cup of vinegar. This is a great STEAM experiment to try with children - make different colour "egg balls" and watch how vinegar dissolves the hard shell to create a bouncy egg. 

In this STEAM project, children will be creating a lemon volcano. These lemon-smelling volcanoes create bubbly small eruptions which you can make in your learning environment with some easily available items in the kitchen. 

We are going to make some glow-in-the-dark magic slime which the children will be able to touch and play with. This is a great STEAM experiment for children to try and also proves to be a sensory activity. Also, it encourages the fine motor skills of a child. 

This is a simple activity that’s very important for children to develop their grasping skills. A child ought to learn and bring into practice the correct form and pattern of grasping a pencil for their future. This needs to be cultivated in the child right from the beginning stage. It could be anything right from picking up big objects like a teddy bear to picking up a tiny object such as a seed. We need to strengthen the hand muscles of a child, which this activity assists the child to do. 

A simple activity that strengthens children's finger muscles as they peel tape off animals.

An easy and fun way for babies and toddlers to practice their fine motor and hand/eye coordination skills by grabbing and pulling items through a kitchen whisk. 

A colourful flower pot that is easy for children to create as a gift for special occasions.

Use coloured hair ties for children to begin to recognise and understand patterns and hand/eye coordination. 

A simple activity that reinforces basic concepts such colour matching, patterning that can be used during quiet time.

Let's celebrate with these spectacular colourful shaving cream fireworks! Easy to make and it's messy and fun!
