Sensory Play – In this class, your child will create a calm down sensory bottle. They can fill their bottle with glitter, beads, loom bands, etc. Once the bottle is finished, it will be sealed permanently to avoid accidents. The bottle will be safe from leakage. The second project will be creating a stress ball with sensory water beads & balloons. Children will learn how to assemble one in class, then leave with water beads they can grow at home and a balloon to complete their project. One of the fun parts of making this stress ball is watching the tiny water beads “grow.” This process takes 24 hours soaking in water. Supervision is advised during assembly.
